Wipers wont turn off

Hello,
I just purchased a 2003 Super Duty 6.0l diesel and on the drive home to Pittsburgh from Tennesse the wipers would not shut off. I have read much this weekend and everything points to the gem mod. I have taken the multifuntion switch out and unplugged it but the wipers still come on when i insert the fuse.
Has anyone got any other ideas, or can anyone tell me where this gem mod is located.

If the 2003 is like the 2002 then the Gem is part of the Fuse box and you have to replace the whole fuse box.

If you figure this out please let me know. Because I have the same problem. I just took the wipers off the truck. I figured if I need them I can put them back on quite quickly.
