Hi again sorry for the delay replying.... Tbh I've not had any experience with anyone upgrading the facelifted fez..... Did a bit if digging, and I reckon you have fitted a GEM from a car equipped with auto wipers and auto lights, going by the two faults you described....(do you know anything about the car it came out of)?
I reckon insted of trying to locate someone who can reprogram the GEM I would be tempted to try fitting a headlight switch that has auto light function on it.... http://bit.ly/15MrJb5
you will never get the intermittent wiper to work though.... Unless you fit a windscreen with the sensors fitted.
Hope this helps,
Let us know how you get on, I'd be interested to see if you can upgrade to auto lights.

Arrrrrgh, scrap that last idea I just noticed that there's a light sensor on the windscreen too, so even if you fitted the headlight switch with the auto function in it, they won't work as auto lights...... Although it would probably sort out your lights so you could use them normally?

That what I was thinking swap the switch but at least restore normal function of the lights. But I am still considering both options depending on the price. My friend has a friend that has comp systems of cars including fords need to see if can program it

Keep you post it in the mean time

Sounds like upgrading/changing the GEM on a facelift fez is a lot more complicated than the pre facelift, would probably be best to see if your friend of a friend can reprogram it to equip everything that you need or is possible

 

keep us up to date on how it goes.

Another thing i noticed is it tries to activate the alarm too. The hazards flash but obviously no sound since i dont have the alarm horn lol :)

Keep you posted

Btw ordered the switch

Also regarding the lugaguge compartment the engine does not need to be runing for the button not to work having the key in pos II is enough for the button not to release lol. Guess it is set that way

lol yes it will be set that way to stop you from opening the tailgate while you are driving :oops:

i've never had the lane changer feature but i fhink its just that.... so will be set to only flash once....

so my guess is, once you fit your new headlight switch then that will sort out your lighting issues :D

My old GEM was actually set to not allow me to open the lugague booth when the car is moving more than 7km/hr just as said in the manual not when the car is idling...

Regarding the lights on further playing with switch I noticed that the switch does actually switch off the light but afteer a few secs I hear a click and the lights go back on. Could the GEM actually be overiding the switch? If yes i bought the switch for nothing :S

Current issues I need to solve

Lighting: switch off lights still go (possibly the GEM set that way)
Cant open tailgate when key is pos 2 or engine runing at any speed
Lane changer is set to 1 click rather than 3 (I had 3 and used to use it alot so i could set it it would be good lol)
Switch to intermittent wipers rather than auto wipers

Hope that guy could program GEMs lol

Now that looks like an awesome piece of kit (if it does what it says on the tin), it will make interesting reading when I get the chance, any idea how much they cost?

Asked him iff it works for a fiesta and then ill ask him if he got anyones already modified. Otherwise around £9.59 then you have to modify it to make it a writer
