Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.
The GEM module should not be to blame here. The brittle wiring or circuit board on the instrument cluster is more likely to blame. I recommend getting the cluster back out and confirming its getting power and ground. If that is something you can do, I have the wire diagrams to help you.
This is my 1st answer of what can be many. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. At the top of your screen is the rating box that you only get to use once. Please make sure to complete the mandatory rating when ready or reply and say "I am pleased with my answer". Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way.
Sorry was towing most of the day.
The fuse box CJB would be more so to blame than the GEM. Can you remove the CJB and GEM to see if your leak has gotten inside either and caused rust and electrical arcing?
At the cluster can you confirm the 2 RD/YE wires are power with the key on.
RED/WH power all the time
PK/OG and BK/WH grounds
PK is pink
Hello again Chris here,
Thanks for the update.
As I mentioned before this post is due to time out, that is tomorrow at 9pm.
That means you will have paid for help but not resolved the concern and it means I will not get anything for helping.
