GEM stands for General Electrical Module and it controls pretty much all the dash electrical functions. I am not a technician so I dont know whats causing your problem, but I do work for a Ford dealer and we sell quite a few GEM modules that go bad. Not necessarily for Escapes only but modules non the less. I would get it checked by a Ford dealership, perhaps that is the culprit of your problem.
#6 of 130 Ford Escape rear wiper
Nov 18, 2008 (2:37 pm)
I have a Ford Escape with no owners manual. My rear wiper stopped working and I wanted to check if it was a blown fuse. There is a fuse box under the hood as well as at the foot of the passenger. There is no diagram showing the back wiper and either fuse box lid. Does anyone know which fuse box and which fuse it may be so I can check it.

Sorry, mfenn my part catalog does not tell me what fuse goes to what, you will have to do it the hard way and pull every single fuse out and check if any of them are blown. sorry!

We just bought a 2001 escape and have the exact same problem! Did you ever solve the problem?
#12 of 130 Same blown fuse
Jun 09, 2009 (3:05 pm)
2001 Escape would not start (could not even turn key in ignition) Was told to push the "manual" gear shift to turn key...car starts! We took it to the shop and were told to have a fuel pump installed...did. Same fuse continues to blow (not right away, sometime 2 weeks, sometimes 2 days) We were told by a guy at Autozone that we needed a new alternator, maybe. Took it to the shop they agreed, butbefore doing the work, they called and said no not alternator, you better take it to the Ford dealer, because..... Help
#14 of 130 Fire due to electrical short
Jun 09, 2009 (8:51 pm)
My 2008 Escape started on FIRE due to an electrical short in the headlight area. The car had been off and parked for 2 hours and just started on fire on the front drivers side area. We put it out with the hose. When the fire dept arrived and looked it over as best they could at 10:00pm they believed it was caused by an electrical short. Our Insurance agent claims he couldn't find anything that could cause it to be Fords Responsibility. Why would a 2008 just start on fire and it not be covered under a warantee? Any thoughts on this?//
