Try squeezing the tnt relay to make contact. Both switches dont work? Battery condition?

I tried squeezing the relay but nothing.  Just getting a clicking noise.  yes both switches don't work.  Battery is fine ut I guess I should check voltage.  Engine cranks right up so I didn't think it could be the battery

Little info to go on, not even model number as to year or the big block or small block 200HP. I would test the electrical circuit for the P/T/T and most likely the relay at fault. Do not rule out the tilt limit switch either.

It is a 2012 E-Tec 200. Turns out the tilt motor is dead. Seems ridiculous to me. Engine only has 170 hours on it. Does anyone know if this is a common problem with these engines?

Rare failure but seen it will all brands-hours does not really affect electrical motors-which is basically all you have. Not expensive or hard to replace and do not source aftermarket cheap one. Also a broken wire can cause this so I would want to be certain that they have tested the wiring going to the unit and a simply 12v supply to either wire can see if this electric motor works.
