It stands for General Electric Module. Its basically the control box for everything you mentioned.

Its on the back side of your fuse panel under the dash

Probably nothing you did. They fail just because of wearing out or water damage.

Make sure that your wiper cowl area is free of debris so the water drain hole works.

If not water tends to drip right on the GEM and kill it

Hey I found something searching online and it says the overdrive wire that comes out of the shifter rubs and shorts the wire and will blow fuse 41 or 45, does that apply to excursions or just the trucks?

Does anyone have a wiring schematic for the #2 relay (instrument cluster) for a 2000 PSD excursion? My relay is constantly clicking when the key is off
