What controls....

I have an '03 Excursion, and I know some things differ between the EX and the PU's with the electricals. Is there a computer module or something that controls the overhead console trip computer, climate control, radio, etc? Every once in awhile the overhead console will be blank, or the radio will shut off, or the climate controls will go blank. Not neccessarily at the same time. And they usually come back on after a few minutes. I'm just trying to figure this out.

Your control unit maybe going bad. This is a common issue on 05 trucks most users find relief to the situation by turning the headlights off and back on, i wonder if that will work on your 03.

What is the control unit? Is it the GEM, or is that on 7.3 engine years? Is it something I can install myself? Maybe get it programmed outside the vehicle, or does it need to be installed and then programmed? I just want to get this fixed.
