It is in the right front side of the center console. It is also a programable module.
.They don't call it the GEM anymore it is now called the Smart Junction Box.

    We have a 2001 Ford Escape with a small problem. The remote key fob locks the doors and unlocks the doors but the lights don't flash anymore when you lock the door. The horn also won't honk after hitting...

    I think you need to reprogram the module, you deleted the horn chirp and light flash confirmation. he dealer can reprogram for you.

    Principles of Operation
    Power Door Locks
    The generic electronic module (GEM) controls the power door lock and keyless entry system. Lock and unlock operation is achieved through the use of internal relays in the GEM. The relays are all door lock, all door unlock and driver door unlock. The normal path of the relays is to ground.
    Pressing the door lock control switch to lock or unlock sends a ground signal to the GEM. The same GEM pin is used for unlock and lock input. The unlock signal is a direct connection to ground. The lock signal is altered by an internal resistor in the door lock control switch. This varied resistance identifies lock or unlock command to the GEM.
    The door locks can also be controlled by the door key cylinder switches. For the liftgate door lock switch, turning the key to lock or unlock sends a ground signal to the GEM. The GEM will then ground the all door lock or all door unlock relay supplying voltage to the actuators. Turning the driver door key cylinder to the lock position sends a ground signal to the GEM. The GEM will then ground the all door lock relay supplying voltage to the actuators. Turning the driver door key cylinder to unlock sends a ground signal to GEM. The GEM will ground the driver door unlock relay and supply voltage to only the driver door actuator. If a second unlock ground is received within three seconds of the first, the GEM will ground the all door unlock relay supplying voltage to the passenger door actuators (if 2-stage unlock is equipped).
    Keyless Entry
    The keyless entry remote transmitter sends a signal that is received by the GEM internal antenna. Depending on the signal received, the GEM module will ground the appropriate internal relay and lock all doors or unlock the driver door. If the unlock signal is received again within three seconds of the first unlock, the GEM will ground the internal all door unlock relay unlocking all doors. The lock and unlock relay output to the actuators is controlled by the GEM, the same as power door lock operation from the control switch.
    If the signal received is for the panic button, the GEM will cycle ground to the park lamp relay coil and horn relay coil. The park lamps and horn will continue to cycle until the panic button is pressed again or the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, or after the timer expires.

    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)
