With the issues I am having w/ my '97 Explorer XLT - 4WD, such as; Intermittent power window issue, intermittent interior lights, intermittent wipers, I am thinking about bypassing the GEM altogether & putting each of these on their own circuit. Oh yeah, intermittent 4WD as well. Would I simply cut the wires leading to the GEM for the appropriate circuits & leave the connectors plugged into the GEM? I guess so, since it is controlling other circuits. Of course, I suppose it is just a matter of time until they fail as well... Anyone else done this before? Ideas/thoughts/suggestions?
