    a buddy of mine has a yamaha prov150, 1990, and when he was taking off the motor started lifting up on its own. he had to disconnect the battery because the tilt/trim motor keeps running. maybe a stuck solenoind? anybody have any ideas.
    rthanks

    Mine done the same thing Saturday night. Found that my after market trim switch on the engine cover had picked up water and was shorting it out.

    Dawg, from past experience, I would have to believe that a switch has failed. I don't know what his set up it but that is most likely the problem.
