Any of the relays fried?? Also, you check both the under hood and under dash set of fuses?

Well I am sorry to say, but it sounds like you should take the truck into a reliable shop. Let them fix the problem and send the bill to the shop that screwed up the truck in the first place. There could be melted wires, shorts, fuseable links, ecm, pcm, the Gem modual could be shorted out. Numerous electrical issues could exsist now. Sorry about the other person doing this to your truck. But needless to say it could take hours to trouble shoot and find all the electrical problems that you may have now.

I agree with BigC. A good tech would have known about the GEM modual.
