burning up gem modules/fuse panels

I have a 02 sc 2wd that is burning up the gem modules/fuse panels. When it came in the guage cluster was dead. No blown fuses, tried another guage cluster, no change. hooked up the AE and said no response from GEM module. Had another GEM/fuse panel and bingo everything worked except when i put in reverse i saw a spark down by the shift interlock solinoid and boom no guages and a dead GEM/fuse panel. I unplugged the shift interlock and the OD button and fuel heater and no spark. Plugged the OD button in and no spark, so I take it for a drive and I am now on my third GEM/fuse panel and its history too. (I thought the fuel heater and shift solinoid maybe the problem.) I would think everything would be fused on the truck, but I get no blown fuses. anybody had this happen before??? please help

Re: burning up gem modules/fuse panels

Sort of, but I had fuses go at the same time.

It's not uncommon to develop shorts in the steering column on these. That's what mine was.

I'm electrically retarded though, so that's where my knowledge ends. I paid to have it fixed.

Hope that helps!
