Gem Module, Fuse Box and Window Reseal


This 1997 Ford F150 needs the GEM module changed due to multiple conditions. To see testing that lead to this repair please click here. The GEM module is located t the rear of the interior fuse box.
dsc02823.jpg
The first step is to remove the trim panel that covers the gap between the upper side of the steering column and the dash. It just unsnaps from the dash. It makes it a little easier to remove if you move the shifter all the way down to drive 1.
dsc02824.jpg
With that out of the way the lower dash cover can now be removed. Most of the screws have 7 mm heads but there are two that have 8 mm heads.
dsc02825.jpg
Those two are at the lower edge of the fuse box.
dsc02826.jpg
One wiring harness needs to be disconnected from the panel.
dsc02827.jpg
Now the screws for the fuse box can be removed.
dsc02828.jpg
The wiring harnesses can be removed from the back of the fuse box. Two 10 mm headed bolts at the center of each connector.
dsc02829.jpg

Next remove the tube brace from around the bottom of the steering column. Four fasteners with 13 mm heads.
dsc02830.jpg

Now wiggle, pry and twist the fuse box and GEM module assembly down.
dsc02831.jpg
After the assembly is down far enough unplug the remaining harness connectors from the GEM module.
dsc02832.jpg
Almost there.
dsc02837.jpg
The assembly is now free of the vehicle.
dsc02833.jpg
The GEM module is held to the back of the fuse box by three phillips headed screws.
dsc02834.jpg
Easy to remove Now.
dsc02836.jpg
With the three screws removed the GEM unplugs from the back of the fuse box.
dsc02835.jpg
I put it all back together and checked my repair for power to the driver's power window switch.

My moms 1998 Ford Taurus's battery dies with the cables normally connected. If you take one of the cables off the battery, it works fine. You just need to reconnect before you start the engine. We were...


It sounds like something is drawing power with the key off. It could be the GEM module but I doubt it. There is a draw somewhere. Connect battery and pull fuses one at a time to see if curent drain stops. You will need an ampmeter in series with the battery and the postive cable. Expensive. Get one from pick n pull salvage yard real cheap.


  • Check the following fuse junction panel fuses: fuse 23 (5A), fuse 20 (5A), and fuse 8 (5A).

    All windows will not work on my 2005 ford taurus


    2002 taurus. don't have 2005. Sorry.

    Could be your GEM module. Call your dealer and ask if your 2005 has GEM module. It's expensive so be sure it is problem first.

    Dealer can test with NGS tool.

    CAUTION: Once the new module is installed, it is necessary to download the module configuration information from the diagnostic tool equipment into the new module. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01 .

    Principles of Operation
    The generic electronic module (GEM) constantly monitors its subsystems for concerns. If a concern is found in one of the subsystems, the GEM will record the concern in the form of a diagnostic trouble code (DTC).
    The ignition switch position is very important to the GEM functionality. Erratic or unexpected GEM functions can often be traced to problems with these ignition GEM inputs.
    The GEM controls a variety of systems:
    • windshield wipers
    • courtesy lamps
    • warning chimes
    • keyless entry
    • interior and exterior lamps
    • power windows
    • parking brake actuator warning chime
    Inspection and Verification
    1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
    1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


    Visual Inspection Chart Electrical
    • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 216 (15A)
    • Damaged wiring harness
    • Loose or corroded connector(s)
    • Circuitry
    • Generic electronic module (GEM)

    I think you may have lost communication with the GEM module. Only dealer can reestablish.
