In your case u might wanna check fuse #29. Its the same fuse as the one labeled in the 2003 model only the 03 model has more stuff connected to it. Im not sure if its the same thing for the 2000 model, but ide definitely check that fuse first too. Good luck.I'm having the same problem, they just died on me a few days ago. The headlamps don't come on anymore with the autolamps, but if I turn them on manually, they're fine. Just the parking lights come on with the autolamps. From checking the old threads, it appears that the 2000 and 2001 (which I have) don't seem to have relays that can be replaced. Each thread about a 2000 or 2001 just seems to die without any kind of answer. 1999 and earlier seem to be set up differently and I think even 2002 might have the relay.
Can anyone else confirm or help? Because the parking lights come one, it appears the headlamp switch is fine and I did check the manual and didn't see any relay listed in the underhood junction box. This sounds like GEM problem that other people have mentioned but no one seems to have solved. I think I'm just going to have to switch them manually from now on, it was nice when it worked.[/b]
Ok I went ahead and signed up for alldatadiy.com. Took a while, but the latest I have is that there's a pinpoint test I where the headlamps don't work but the parking lights do. In section I4, it mentions checking the auto headlamp relay for a short to power, but in the picture it just has some type of connector. It says the measure the voltage between GEM C201d pin 25 (CJB side) and ground. If the voltage was present, repair or install a new CJB. Clear the DTCs. Repeat self test. I also pulled up the diagram of the CJB and it looks like the fuse box but there's no autolamp relay listed on it.The 2000-2001s with autolamps should have replaceable relays. They are in the central junction box.
After looking over the service DVD it does say the relays are in a printed circuit board. So they are not easily replaceable. The CJB is located under the dash. Looks to me to be the fuse panel?[/b]
I think for your problem, it can also be the switch or the photocell sensor. There are a bunch of pinpoint tests for it. PM me and I'll send you the diagrams.I'm going to head over to a yard in the second half of March and see if I can get a GEM out of a 2000-1 model. I don't think anyone is selling one on here? :dunno:
Even though HenrySEL and I both have SELs, they use the same GEM as any car that has remote keyless entry (the keyfobs). Ford made two GEMs: one with remote keyless entry (it'll have a tear off 5 digit code for your keypad) and one without remote keyless. I'm guessing that the remote keyless entry one has the built in relays for the autolamps. My autolamps stay on all the time, even in bright sunny weather.
I also have Paul's test I can try once I make the right wire.
Paul, on my car the CJB/GEM/Fusebox appear to be all one module at least in my car unless I'm mistaken :dunno:
Once I pull the GEM apart, I'll see how (im)possible it is to replace the relays. Hopefully there is a Taurus SES or something at the yard with the right GEM.[/b]
Power mirror and window might be a separate issue and dome light could be part of the GEM. I think what it controls is the delay when they go off after a while or when you first unlock the doors. I don't think it should affect it if you turn them on manually. In the above, it doesn't say anything about controlling the power mirrors so maybe you should just look for a regular fuse either under the hood or under the dash. Same as the windows, I believe GEM only controls the express down feature on the driver's side.I read in a post somewhere that there are fuses INSIDE the GEM. My dome lights, power mirror, and window don't work. However, the wipers, keyless entry, and IP warning lights and chimes DO work. How do I go about replacing these fuses??[/b]
