Re: generic electronic module

Its behind the under dash fuse panel. Need to drop the fuse panel to get to it.

Re: generic electronic module

have you replaced it? i dont think that i can get the fuse block out due to the wires being too short. is there a trick?

Re: generic electronic module

I am just speaking in general, I have not pulled the Fuse Panel out of my truck.

But in most cases you undo the screws, the fuse panel pulls out and the wires will be coming out one end, so you just kind of roll the fuse panel out of you way. Might be tight access to the GEM.

Re: generic electronic module

yeah its real tight in there. also they are attached to one another somehow. do you guys know if this is a dealer only part? thanks so much you guys you dont know what i would be doing if it wasnt for this sight. i think we should start a piggy bank for all the money saved on easy to do items and other repairs that sound impossible only to be easily figured out with the wealth of knowledge on here. i for one just saved 79 dollars for just diagnostics. god knows what would have been charged after that.

Re: generic electronic module

Try www.powerstrokeshop.com or www.fordpartsnetwork.com

The first one is a site sponsor so try them first.

I just picked up an '00 F350 4x4. When I hit the unlock button the wipers come on and the rear windows will work if I hold the lock/unlock down, but the fronts do not work under any circumstances. I also have only one power mirror working, and the front hubs do not seem to actuate. Seems fairly certain the GEM is bad... but where the hell is it? Is it the large board on the back of the fuse panel, or is it under the covers where the wire bundles go in on the bottom back? Trying to find out the exact part number before I call the Ford house tomorrow... but this is proving to be one heck of a pain in the ass!

TIA for the help; several threads on here were instrumental in zeroing in on the problem.

Like one of the earlier posts in this thread said, it's on top of the fuse panel. IIRC, the connectors (3) to the GEM itself are on the left side of the GEM, and the GEM is mounted on the front top of the fuse panel, with the two fuse panel wiring connectors below the GEM. Remove the fuse panel connectors from below (takes a 10mm wrench on the securing bolt on each connector), then unbolt the fuse panel from the access opening and move it around to get at the GEM connector, then jockey the whole thing out. When I removed mine, I had the instrument panel cover off, so had a couple of access holes thru from above.

It is a PITA to get at.

Yeah... I'm not sure what the inside looks like but I'm guessing the captive nut on at least of the 10mm bolts is just spinning in place, it doesn't seem to be coming out. I may just see what the Ford house says to replace it, I've made a buddy in the parts department and usually get stuff close to cost, so maybe he can help me befriend the service department.

The bolts (not nuts) are captive on the connectors and will be totally unscrewed before the connector comes off. You have to pull on the connector at that point to get them off.

It's always good to have friends.
