How do you remove the chrome bezel from around the front lights cluster.
I'm trying to replace a bulb in the upper clear plastic lens, and access from the inside is impossible....
What is the upper clear lens light for?

I have the same problem and have done a little research. Mine went dead leaving the heater fan switch on low and when the ignition was turned off, the blower motor kept running. The reason is, that ford trucks are known for a moisture leak in wet weather on the driver's side windshield. Moisture runs in behind the dash over the top of the fuse box where the G.E.M. (generic electronic module) is located. This moisture shorts this circuit board, which controls the heater motor some interior lights, and the one touch power window control on the drivers door as well as probably some other things. I haven't pulled mine out yet, but I noticed that I do have moisture getting in; probably will do it this weekend. Mine still works when it's dry, so I'm going to try and seal it up. They (the part) are in the neighborhood of $350.00 wholesale.

Probably moisture in the G.E.M. (generic electronic module) right above the interior fuse box on my 2000

I pulled out the fuse block and the gem. The problem is actually water in the top of the fuse block that the gem is plugged into and it shorts the connections. Cleaned the water out of the fuse block (there was no water in the gem) let it all dry, then siliconed the seams of the fuse block and it's all good. a couple of hours, not too hard, and very few tools. Piece of cake...! If you need directions, I typed up a little thing with pictures. E-mail me at denbe47 yahoo.com and I'll email it to you. (put GEM in the subject heading.

Has it been raining where you are tostado? All those items you mentioned are controlled by the GEM (generic electronic module) on top of the interior fuse box (see the post above) If you think it might be, e-mail me and I'll send you the directions. Email is denbe47yahoo.com

Just bought a F-150 and I have had electrical problems since the test drive. The battery light came on while test driving. They took it to service and after waiting for an hour and a half they said it was a cable they fix, light is off so I buy the truck. Since buying the truck The truck has died twice the battery light continues to come on gauges die right before the truck shuts off. I have owned the truck for 5 weeks and I have had it in the shop 5 times. The service department can't find anything wrong. Its like the truck re sets itself after it has been off for awhile. Has anybody experienced this problem? How did you fix it?

parking lights(tail lights) and dash light and lights above the cab and license plate lights not working on my 94 f350 with 7.3 turbo diesel
Mar 04, 2010 (6:52 am)
ok I have a 96' F-450 diesel powerstroke 7.3L 2 wd. My turnsignals were fading on and off randomly. Then y radio started going nuts quickly turning on and off. The next morning my batteries were dead. I suspected the alternator so I replaced it. I recharged my batteries that are both less than a yr. old, but my truck is not recharging my batteries. My battery guage is not up to where it needs to be and my batteres continue to die. I am no mechanic at all and don't know much at all, someone walked me through the alternator change over the phone, I am a self employed carpenter w/ just this one truck and am unable to work now and it's costing my family money, can someon please help me. If it's easier to call, my cll # is 267-481-0552, I appreciate any help.
