not real sure where this goes but it's a 7.3 problem

so for the past few weeks I've been having ALOT of electrical problems with my truck.....power windows stopped working( ALL OF THEM!!!! ), windshield wipers quit working......( but if you put the multifunction switch to on and turn the key to the accessory position ) they come on for 2 runs and than go off, and the power door locks beep when you hit them....also my heater stopped putting out power to the blower motor all together( no heat or ac ). I've checked all the fuses and they're good. I do hear a random clicking every now and than when I hit the power windows down or hit the lock button( under the drivers dash board )...Do you guys have any ideas? I was thinking it would/could possibly be my GEM....but I don't know where it's located or where to get a new one from...

PLEASE HELP!!!!

sounds like a GEM to me. They be located under the dash - passenger side behind the glove-box

edit: check for condensation/water leaking from windshield seal - common issue with GEM's going out

I have no remote for the doors, this is on the doorswitches themselves....does the gem have anything to do with the heater? Do you guys know where I can get a GEM for a 2000 f350?

Thanks

I got mine on ebay about 2 years ago. The guy that listed it worked for a dealership and got them at discount, I think I paid $375 for my 2000 F250

The GEM controls all kinds of functions, not sure if the heat is involved. Don't forget to check the fuses under the hood in the power distribution panel and relays too.
