    Okay I have a 115 hp Mercury outboard. The starter is turning but not engaging the flywheel. Is the starter gone out? Also the tilt and trim stopped raising up and down at the same time. All it will do is sat there and click.

    If both happened at the same time, are you sure your battery hasn't gone bad or is low?? I'd pull the truck up to it and put some jumper cables on it to rule that out if you haven't already.

    Check your cable ends also, make sure they are not corroded, I dont think a starter bendix or solenoid & a trim relay would go bad at the same time but then again you never know.......

    Mike and Will said it, sounds like a voltage problem, hopefully just connections.... Good Luck
