Gem Location

Not sure why I can't find this here...

Can someone please tell me where the GEM module is on a 2001 zetec-s? Is it hard to get at, or hard to remove? Could this part be at fault for causing my hazards to flash all the time? Having (kind of) eliminated the flasher unit and all fuses from the equation, this is the only other thing I can think of that might have power over the indicators. It does after all flash all the indicators when double locking the car.

There's no separate module that controls things such as central locking? That seems unlikely - the list of relays on the back of the fuse board is very short.

The GEM module (unless I'm calling it the wrong thing) has a part number YS6T-14K150-CC and is a black box with cables going to it. I just don't know exactly what the damn thing controls or where it is. I'm amazed I can't find it on Google - seems such a simple question :(

It's located behind the fuse box I think. Unclip the fuse box and gently lower it out the way. You should see it

OK thanks chaps - I shall pull it and see if it's responsible for all these strange goings-on.

Yes it was! The GEM module was responsible for the hazards permanently flashing. I replaced it with a new one and nothing worked at all. I put the old one back in and everything worked fine. Very puzzling, but whatever the details it's obviously down to this module. Thanks again, everyone who responded.

What fuse box was it behind?
