Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Are you asking for the Ford diagnostic steps to see if the diag was correct to see if a GEM module replacement is actually needed?

Let me know what would help you best. I have the diag steps and the wiring diagrams, and the steps to replace parts.

Are you in neutral with your foot on the brake when trying to shift from low to high and have verified the brake lights work and have verified the trans range sensor is detecting neutral by trying to start the vehicle in neutral?
