I have a 2001 beetle with battery drain problem we have traced it down to fuse in socket 14 in the fuse panel which was identified as for interior lights but now the power windows do not work.


The power windows are protected by 30A circuit breaker 43. If no battery voltage is read on the R/W wire, the circuit breaker has failed open.
The drain traced to FUSE 14 could be caused by any of the interior lights not switching off, including the luggage compartment light.

Where is the BCM located on a 2000 lincoln navagator?


Ford , Lincoln , Mercury in that era called a GEM generic electronic module .
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 function. Often times, erratic or unexpected GEM function can be traced to problems with these GEM inputs.
The GEM controls the following features:
  • Wipers/washers (front/rear).
  • Warning chimes.
  • Battery saver.
  • Illuminated entry and courtesy lamps.
  • Driver power window.
  • Accessory delay.
  • 4-wheel drive.
  • Heated back lite/mirror.

2000 navigator relay clicking and windows only work with dome light on when vehicle is shut off the dome lights flash for several seconds the wipers quit working also where do I start?


All these components are controlled by a computerized module. You can try disconnecting/reconnecting the battery as this may reset the module. If no results you will have to have this modules operation checked for any codes/failures with a scan tool to possibly pont you in the right direction

Why doesn't my auto window button work on my ford 01 f150. The window rolls down fine but the auto function doesn't work. It started doing that after I changed a bad battery and put in a new one.


. May need to reprogram module due to disconnect.
CAUTION: Prior to removal of the GEM, it is necessary to upload module configuration information to a diagnostic tool. This information needs to be downloaded into the new module once installed. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01.

The following is list of GEM/CTM-controlled functions:
  • wipers/washers (front/rear)
  • warning chimes
  • battery saver
  • illuminated entry and courtesy lamps
  • accessory delay
  • driver power window (GEM only)
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 function. Often times, erratic or unexpected GEM function can be traced to concerns with ignition switch inputs.

Principles of Operation:
The generic electronic module (GEM) controls the opening of the driver window by activating the one-touch down window relay.
The GEM controls manual down and auto down window movement with the down window relay. The relay is activated by applying ground directly to one side of the down window relay coil, and deactivated by removing the ground signal. The delayed accessory relay provides power for the operation of the power windows and the roof opening panel (if equipped). The delayed accessory feature is active when the ignition switch is in the RUN or the ACC position, or when the ignition switch is changed from RUN or ACC to the OFF/LOCK position and the driver and passenger doors are closed.
Down window motion operates in two modes, manual mode and auto mode. When the GEM detects the first down position, first detent on the switch, it enters manual mode. In manual mode, the window will move downward only while the switch is depressed. Similarly, when the GEM detects the second down position, second detent on the switch, it enters auto mode. In auto mode, the window will open completely with just a momentary press of the switch.
the GEM will activate the one-touch down window relay until one of the following conditions is met:
  • The driver window control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The driver window control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the down position (first detent) or the one-touch down position (second detent).
  • Seven seconds have elapsed since the one-touch down feature was initiated.
  • A window regulator motor stall condition is detected on the one-touch down sense line inputs.
The GEM will deactivate the delayed accessory feature when:
  • the driver/passenger door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
  • 10 minutes have elapsed since the ignition switch was changed from ACC or RUN to the OFF/LOCK position.
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
  1. If the scan tool does not power up:
    • check that the program card is correctly installed.
    • check the connections to the vehicle.
    • check the ignition switch is in RUN position.
    • If the scan tool still does not power up, refer to the scan tool manual.
  1. Carry out the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the scan tool responds with:
    • CKT914, CKT915 or CKT70 = ALL ECUS NO RESP/NOT EQUIP, refer to Section 418-00.
    • SYSTEM PASSED, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs, and carry out the self-test diagnostics for the GEM.
  1. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the GEM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.

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 .

I think you may have lost communication with the GEM module. Only dealer can reestablish.

Erratic idle


You need to check for a trouble code, Kragen auto does this for free. Also check for vacuum leaks at the intake manifold.

Auxilary power, electric windows, cigarette lighter and radio not working


Since all fuses are okay, I would start my trace from the fuse box and pick the easiest wire to trace which would probably be the lighter or aux. Check for any breaks in the line or any lose connections. It seems like a harness may be disconnected or cut.

you need to have your GEM module reconfigured after battery disconnect. It controls many functions. It may have also been damaged during battery change due to a voltage spike. Dealer can test it. Call a dealer service dept and describe symptoms and see what they say.
