the same that you sent me but some wires in my model are not in the same place like the relay and hi&low relay.
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Try running the test step in the new link I just posted for you. The relays are located in the under hood fuse panel see them in this link.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how do i run the self test in the gem
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Power to the Dark blue/orange wire comes from the switch. You need full scan tool to pull codes from the GEM module.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i have one but no code shows
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

If you not getting power from the switch on the Dark blue/orange wire from the switch and all the fuse are okay and you not getting any fault codes then I would suspect you may have a bad switch.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ob/o have power and is a new switch
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

You stated the dark blue/orange wire had to power and also said when you jumped power to it the the wiper run. Is that the case?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i remove the relay and jump the ob/o and the motor works same with the white
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay well something is being over looked here but unfortunately with out being there to do that testing I have no idea what your missing.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how do i know if the gem is bad. also i notice that the light in the light switch is on when is off and off when the lights are on
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
that start after the wiper stop working
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i will do it again
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The only way to know if the GEM is failing would be to replace it with a known good unit.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the cables in the relays are in different position. did i should change it to the places that the book show it supposed to be or leave it like that
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

I would not change anything if the positions where working before.

Run back through the steps once more and see if there is something you may have missed.

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Unfortunately I have done all I can from here and I can not be there to do the testing for you. I will open the post back up for you and perhaps some one else has some thing else to offer.
