NOTE: Electronic modules are sensitive to electrical charges. If exposed to these charges, damages may result.
The generic electronic module (GEM) is the only multi-function module on this vehicle.
The 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 GEM inputs.
The GEM controls a variety of systems:
  • instrument cluster warning indication and chimes
  • interior courtesy lamp control
  • automatic headlamp control
  • daytime running lamps (DRL)
  • wiper and washer (front only)
  • heated rear window
  • one-touch down power window
  • delayed accessory
  • power door locks (including SMART, autolocking and luggage compartment lid release)
  • remote keyless entry
  • perimeter anti-theft

2003 Ford Taurus Door locks making ugly noise


It sounds as if the lock solenoids are either very dirty, worn or some of both. I'd open up one of the door panels and locate the locking solenoid. Possibly clean it out with WD40 or such. If problem does persist you'll need to change the solenoids out (if this is the case I'd look for good units off a wreck, save youself a dollar or two)
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Windows have stopped working


First check the fuses if you have not done so. You will need to remove the door panel to get to the driver side window switch, the power for all of the windows enters through the driver side switch. Use a multi meter to determine if power is reaching the switch, if it is not, run a temporary wire from the fuse panel to the switch and see if that will work the windows. If it now works you know the problem is a bad wire. If you are getting power to the switch but not power out the other side you know the switch is bad and must be replaced.

2003 ford taurus. electric windows not working right, started out the driver side would go down and not up, it still has the same problem but now the other windows do not work at all.


Do the windows not work only from drivers door switch, or the doors themselves?

If from drivers side switch, then you need to replace the window switch or maybe some of the wires came loose. If the windows arent working individually, you have short somewhere, or all your motors went out, which I doubt.

Need new door


No need to get new door if it's only the handles that broke off, unless they fell through the rust or something. Buy a new set of handles from dealer or parts place, or even autorecycler (wrecking yard) and change them.
