In Topic: Mk6 Fiesta Flame 1.4 Build Log (Was Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub)

Also did a little test.. turns out the new car DOES have deadlocking, but the indicators Just don't flash to confirm which is annoying. If someone could confirm the GEM Isnt coded to ANY other components then I'll swap it over. (


Dont quote me on it but i dont see swapping over the GEM would upset anything else. Maybe try it and if it does, swap it back. From memory, i think the GEM acts like a RAM or processor kinda thing.
Another thing to try first is remove the fuse and relays for central locking and put them back, could need a little reset. Also when you do that, you may have to reprogramme your keyfob. Have the owners manual to hand - im sure there are guides on the internet for reprogramming.

Im assuming it is a 5door fez you have got?
I thought deadlocking was standard on fiestas 2005 on so it should work and already be set up with the GEM.
Let me know how it goes.

Fair play. The forum is proberbly just as resourceful as a haynes manual, if not better!

I have this feeling in back of my mind that the GEM is behind glovebox but i could be wrong.
Is there a way of doing it with pressing combinations on remote fob maybe? Should be instructions in owners manual. Will try find out for you.

I think from memory when i had my mk6, the gem is behind glovebox or by the battery.

Prob best option is to change over ecu etc if can as it is programmed with all the features you had previously.
