Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
I have diagnosed my 2003 Ford Windstar's bazaar behavior (dome lights, fuel gauge, door locks, break and turn signal lights all not working regularly - off and on behavior) to the REM. However before I spend a ton of money getting this replaced, can I reset the module to default and see if it fixes the issue?
Also, How do I find out what each module does, i.e. What does the Front Elec Module do vs. the Rear Elec Module?
If you have idea about electronics , all fault in ford product are not complex , the ford product was design for new generation technology , i have two answer for this question that may solve the problem , 1. you will need to check interior fuse box if there power relay switch active and trace burnt fuse , and use the manual to track each fuse that link to FEM and REM , there after if there is any burnt fuse or cable trace the cable to the supply device or instrument cluster to identify the cause of burning and then disconnect such device such as rear wiper ,and trace the REM to the panel , and check if there's any burning on the REM board , and unsolder the first relay and correct the burnt printed board line with cable not more than 1-5 kilo-ohms , then replace it make sure the car is disconnected from battery before any technical bench work . thanks
2. use VCM device to scan the system with software from ford .and the error will be detected ....... use my idea if you're technically oriented . thanks
