ok guys i need help ASAP im to be leaving for florida soon.
il be driving along and all of a sudden my door locks start going nuts, and theres all this clicking coming from behind the dash (GEM module) and then it stops and everything is fine and then later same thing. ford quoted me 100 bucks to program the new module and they WONT sell me just the module ford dealership service only part they say and i called another ford same thing. so it would cost like 500 bucks for them to fix it. even if i can replace it they MUST program it and they say the truck wont drive without programing cause of security feature. anyone have any info on this thaxs.

I have read that the new units are already programed and all you have to do is program your key fobs to the new GEM.

My truck did not have the factory keyless locks, Do I still have the GEM in there? I do have powerlocks from the factory. My locks work when they want to and have replace all actuators with the FURD upgrades.:(

It tells you how to do it in the manual.

Give Heller Ford in Elpaso a call, I believe on a 02 it was called a vehicle security module. They replaced mine a year or 2 ago and i think it was 200-300 something, dont quote me but Im pretty sure it wasnt 500.
