Mine just quit working....
it didn't get lazy or stick in certain positions, it just quit in the all up position...

do i need a new gauge or is there a way to trouble shoot the problem?

btw, it's over 600 hours on it...

    I'm not familiar with your motor, but most of the trim senders are pretty much alike. They are attached somewhere near the tilt tube and have a spring loaded arm that is moved up or down when the motor is trimmed. Usually on the port side. So, find this little gizmo and with the key in the on position move it with your finger and see if the gauge moves. The little arm is plastic and sometimes it brakes, so there is no signal sent to the gauge.

    If the gauge doesn't move, look for compromised wires in the area where the motor tilts. Make sure the wiring is good all the way to the gauge. If everything is ok, then the problem might be the gauge.
