Quick Google says this is the module for steering the drive and the fault is related to the pump and motor that provides the steering.

TVM = Thrust Vectoring Module

Yes that's correct the TVM is part of the Axius system. The vessel view showed fault maintenance required. The system works correctly but for the "TVM: Fault Maintenance Required" showing on the vessel view

You need a new mechanic. Maybe one certified for newer Merc technology.

Have you tried googling for a Merc Axius manual? I try when I have some time.
