    Think i got water in my GEM the lights will not go off will this dry out or is the GEM toast


    The GEM is located behind the radio, so you would have had to pull a real no no to get it wet. Most likely, a sticking door ajar switch is you culprit, very common on Ford vehicles, the bad part is they are located in the door latch and can be a bear to replace.

    Power winidows, wipers, dome lights not working on 1998 explorer


    This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.

    These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.

    New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

    Good Luck
