PLEASE HELP! Wiring issues reverse lights, turn signal, OH console stopped working

Well the other day I got a chance to put my 08-09 tail lights in my 2002 F-250. When I went to wire up my reverse lights with the new pigtailit blew the fuse for the reverse lights, no biggie right? So I put a new fuse in it and still did not work, also neither did my turn signal or my over head console. The brake lights work fine and so do my brights and WS wipers so Iam lost at this point. I checked all the other fuses and they are fine. Any ideas?

Anybody got any ideas? Also don't know if this helps or not but sometimes my windows won't roll up and the radio will stop working but will start working after about 5 min of driving down the road everything will just start working.

GEM? What is that? Do you think it has something to do with my other problems?

I believe it stands for general electrical module. I think its located behind the fuse panel. Sometimes the windshield leaks and fries it. My truck does the same exact thing though. The power windows and radio wont work but they come on about a minute later with no rhyme or reason. They never go off while driving. I dont know about the other stuff. I guess if you wired something wrong, it could affect that.

I just bought it and I believe it has some serious wiring issues.
