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.

2003 ford focus no taillights,, no license plate light all fuses are good. Does any one know how to test the head light switch?

Before testing the headlight switch, check for a defective general electronics module (GEM) and 15A FUSE 32 in the central junction box (CJB). These components could be the source of exterior lighting problems.

2000 Ford Focus automatic door locks quit working. Replaced Central locking module, but still does not work. All of the doors will only work manually. Remote works to open trunk only - will not work on...

check fuse 63 first.

Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Binding latch mechanisms
  • Binding linkage
  • Misaligned door
  • Central junction box fuse 63 (20A)
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connection(s)
  • Circuit
  • Door lock switch
  • Door lock actuator

It could also be your GEM (generic electronic module) which is expensive as it controls a lot of stuff. A scan tool can be used to cehck for fault codes from the GEM.

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

2003 focus interior lights won't come on when you enter or leave car

OMG! My mom had the same problem. Hit the lights for gods sake!

Mar 05, 2009 | 2003 Ford Focus

Interior lights

What they are speaking of is the GEM module however this will not correct the concerns you have.
The GEM controls the following functions:
  • warning chimes and warning lamps
  • one-touch down window
  • windshield washers and wipers
  • battery saver
  • illuminated entry with keyless remote entry
  • interior lighting
Turn signals and hazzard lamps do not go thru the GEM module at all and the reverse lamps all the gem does there is look for reverse so it knows when to activate the auto lock doors when vehicle is in motion.
I suspect you have 2 or more problems here that you may want to get checked by an experienced Ford tech.Also the GEM has to be programed when replaced.It is not plug and play.
