Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

I assume your calling the GEM module the wiper module since that is the only module used by the wiper system. A new GEM module replacement installed does require a dealer equivalent diagnostic tool to program it.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris

One of the things I ask is can I do it using a scanner because I am planning to get a scanner

I do not understand why you rated me as a poor tech for providing just what you asked for.
