GEM went again! UPDATE 12/06
I just replaced my GEM about a week ago and I get ready to leave today and no dash lights or 4wd again. It was a used one but now I have to get another one. And of course we get our first snow today so I can barely get around.
Could anything cause a GEM to go bad? Or did I just get a bad one?
Warmed up the truck today as I was cleaning off more snow and when I opened the door the 2nd time my dome light came on and my 4wd was working. Can I possibly have a water leak that needed to dry out, or could it have been the snow and cold? Not sure. I tried to see if I had a short somewhere by doing some rough driving over some railroads and potholes but nothing it kept on working. So I'm leaning towards it doesn't like the cold or moisture somewhere. But there was no dampness when I changed it out. Possibly fuse box could be damp or it just had enough time to dry before I changed it.
What does everyone think?
