    I posted a reply to your other post a while back and you never responded. If you would like help please:

    -Follow up on the threads you open.
    -Include more detail (what did you "hot wire", specifically, what did you do, etc)

    By doing this, you will not only get more accurate help quicker, but you are much more likely to get a reply at all.

    Below is my previous response to your question about trim and the MFD-

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    Not totally sure what your question is. I assume you are having a problem with the trim motor?

    The trim switch is only powered when the ski is running, or the bilge button is pressed. So if it seems not to work when the ski is off, that is normal. Either start the ski or press the bilge button. If neither methodworks, check the fuse inside the electrical box. There is a glass fuse for the MFD and one for the bilge.

    As for the MFD, 99+ MFDs fail quite often because of a manufacturing change where water gets in thru the button cable from the face to the circuit board. They, typically speaking are not reparable. Most source a 95-99 unit and re-pin the connector to work.

    I would recommend using the search function on the forum, almost every question can be answered, and the plus side is, you dont have to wait! But if you cant find what you are looking for, feel free to ask!
    Below is a diagram for a 00' SLX, the trim wiring is the same. Only difference is the ignition has wiring for a third cyl. THis may assist you in your troubleshooting.
