Trim up/down

Is it the trim pump solenoid valves?

It will go down but not up. Only clicks. What should I look at to fix?

Thanks

    My trim pumps have separate up and down solenoids.  I had 1 fail and was able to replace it.

    Sounds like it could be pump motor or the solenoid not reversing the polarity properly. Do some tests per the attached.

    Yeah, till I looked at what I sent him I forgot there were 2, thought it was a changeover/polarity reverse.Hopefully the info I sent allows him to narrow it down.

    You can jump across the solenoid and see if the drive moves.

    OK, I ordered new solenoids. Should be here soon. In the mean time, I did the jumper deal. Both up and down works just fine.

    At the throttle, down works all the time, up once every 10 or so times. I can hear the clicking at the pump so that tells me that I am getting a signal. Is this the solenoid or low battery?
