SOURCE: I have residual current draw on 1996 Ford

When checking a draw you have to wait to check till all modules have powered down including Gem module. This can take up to 30 min. Specs are 50 ma draw. To check get you a test light take off the postitive cable, " you can also use a meter", now you have to put the light in series withe the battery and cable. Clamp one side of test light to battery cable the other side to battery post WITH CABLE OFF THE WHOLE TIME. Now if you open doors turn any switches you will have to restart your 30min. then you can check and see if unplugging module, if that fixed problem. what we do is open the doors before, then take a screw driver and close the door latch so that you can get in and out of the car without turning something on

Location of the speed sensors on my 1999 ford explorer


Vehicle Speed Signal
The vehicle speed signal is generated by the rear anti-lock brake sensor and sent to the 4-wheel anti-lock brake system (4WABS) module. The 4WABS module sends the vehicle speed signal via circuit 679 (GY/BK) to all systems which require a vehicle speed signal input.

    Dome lights stay on all the time


    Hey Rich how's it going ? What make , model an year vehicle do you have ? On vehicles after 1996 light functions are control by a control module , Body control module for GM vehicles , GEM - generic electronic module an smart junction box for Ford vehicles an Chryslers have central timer modules or upfront modules or now they have totally intergraded power module . These modules receive an input from a door switch or the switch on the dash ! anything is possible with these systems ! Do you have a symbol of a car on the dash showing a door open when it's not ? A door ajar message ? I have my Ford service info open on my lap top , was check out a problem on ford explorer , have a description on GEM .
    Detecting Faults in the GEM Output Circuits
    Battery shorts can only be detected when the device being controlled is actuated (e.g., relays, lamps or solenoids). All faults are monitored continuously during the vehicle operation. Reporting Trouble Codes
    Faults are displayed after the continuous DTCs and the On-Demand DTCs are retrieved. Continuous DTCs should be retrieved from the GEM before an On-Demand Self Test is run. These DTCs are then compared against the diagnostic trouble codes retrieved after running an On-Demand Self Test. .
    An a code reader for check engine lights won't work for these systems !

    What is the fuse number for the power windows on a 2001 Ford Explorer?


    The power windows are not directly fused, the power for the windows comes from a central control module called the "GEM", when you touch the window button the signal is sent to the GEM and it rolls the window down for you, it is a computer and it controls all the body electrical functions. This module can be tested and will return fault codes for what it finds lacking in the systems it tests, so what must be done now is to have the GEM tested for faults.
