I'm writing this for my father who's avoiding technology at all costs. =)

We've been working on a '97 Taurus GL, 3.0. There is an electrical short that drains the battery and we're trying determine the problem. Currently all functions work in the car. Windows, lighting delays, interior control seem to work fine.

When pulling individual fuses the test light only shuts off when pulling the radio fuse and the battery saver fuse together. Pulling each fuse separately causes the test light to show half power. Pulling both together seems to remove the short.

The only common link we see between these two circuits is through the GEM. Which as I understand, it controls the delays for interior lights, accessory lights and headlights etc. Does anyone know the location of the GEM? We were told it was located between the radiator and the grill. (in that area) And we want to make sure this is the issue before spending the time and money. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Thank you in advance for the advice.

Thank you very much for the information. I appreciate you taking the time to answer our question. This helps us get to the module. Even if it isn't the problem at lest we can rule it out. Thanks again.
