I was trying to test my blend door actuator motor and accidentilly touched one of the jumpers to the frame and blew a fuse. Power Windows, Power Locks, Interior Lights, Trunk Popper, Radio are all not working. Can anyone please direct me which fuse is blown. I pulled a bunch under the dash and they appeared fine. 2003 Taurus SEL
Thanks

Could be a problem affecting the GEM (generic electronic module).

Fuse 22 protects the trunk release solenoid and lock relays.

Fuse 16 protects the GEM

Also check Fuses 10 and 26. 10 protects the master accessory relay, but if it blew, you would probably have lost more functions than the ones you have mentioned. 26 protects the courtesy lamps but if the glove and vanity lamps work, it is intact.

The GEM is my suspect. Either fuse 16 is blown or the GEM is damaged.

As a last resort and a final act of desperation, you can always look in your owner's manual. All the fuses and what they protect is listed in the maintenance section.
