If im not mistaking, you said you have no power to your interior lights and heater controls when you have your key off or not on? in order for you to have power to your heater controls your key must be on or accessory. your light not working? you may have turned your switch off to your interior lights by accident. on your entry door, it could probbably be dead batteries in your remote if it came with one.

2005 f150 4x4 power windows ,interior lights a/c ,radio gauges are not working fuses are ok and already check for voltage and it has but still not working . It has something else in betwen..?......


Checked voltage where ?
The instrument control module (ICM) controls power to the power window system by activating or deactivating the delayed accessory relay.
Symptom Chart Condition Possible Sources Action
  • All power windows are inoperative
  • Fuse(s).
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster module (ICM).
  • Accessory delay relay.
  • Driver window control switch.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test A .
Vehicles equipped with remote keyless entry (RKE) have an illuminated entry feature, which enables the instrument cluster module (ICM) to illuminate the interior lamps (and if equipped, the puddle lamps in the exterior mirrors) when an unlock signal is received from the vehicle security module through the UBP network, or when any of the doors are opened. The ICM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry feature by activating the battery saver relay. When active, the illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1342 ECU is Defective Instrument Cluster Module REFER to Section 413-01 . B2499 Courtesy Lamp Output Failure Instrument Cluster Module Go To Pinpoint Test A . B2659 Courtesy Switch Fault Instrument Cluster Module Go To Pinpoint Test C . - All Other DTCs Instrument Cluster Module REFER to Section 419-10 . Do you have a professional grade scan tool ? If not your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

2002 ford expedition interior lights are not on what fuse is it?


Courtesy Lamps - central junction box. fuse # F1.21 that goes to interior lamp relay in the instrument cluster and F.24 this fuse powers battery saver relay .
Interior Lighting The interior light system consists of the following:
  • front map lamp assembly
  • front door courtesy lamp
  • generic electronic module (GEM)
  • glove box lamp assembly
  • central security module
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior lamp relay
  • illuminated vanity mirrors (Navigator only)
  • reading lamp assembly
  • rear courtesy lamp
  • running board lamp
  • underhood lamp assembly
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) illuminates the interior lamps when an unlock signal is received from the remote anti-theft personality central security module. The illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
    • 25 seconds have elapsed since the illuminated entry feature was activated and the interior lamp control is not activated (door ajar or courtesy lamp switch on).
    • The GEM receives a request from the central security module (remote transmitter lock button pressed) and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    • The ignition is in the RUN or START position and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    The GEM will illuminate the interior lamps when any door is open or ajar. The interior lamps are; the dome lamp, the rear cargo lamp, the door courtesy lamp and the side rail lamps. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp switch is received.
    The GEM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry function by activating the interior lamp relay.
  • You have an electronic control module and relays involved in the operation of these lights also !

    1 Answer

    Fuse or what


    Your multifunction switch on the steering column controls your exterior lights. The GEM module controls the interior lights and other stuff. If bad, it would not blow fuses. WHich fuse blows?
    Your Ford dealer might be familiar with this issue, so call the service dept and ask them and get a quote. It may be wiring.
    reoprt back.

    • The high beams are inoperative
    • Circuitry.
    • Multifunction switch.
    • Go To Pinpoint Test C .


    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Principles of Operation
    Generic Electronic Module (GEM) The generic electronic module (GEM) receives inputs from the following:
    • door ajar switches
    • liftgate ajar switch (wagon)
    • liftgate glass switch (wagon)
    • headlamp switch
    • keyless entry keypad switches
    • the powertrain control module (PCM) (vehicle speed signal)
    • ignition switch
    • remote keyless entry transmitter
    The GEM uses these inputs to control the output to the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay. Both relays are integral to the central junction box (CJB) and cannot be accessed directly.
    Interior Lighting Systems The GEM grounds the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay coils when any door ajar switch or the headlamp switch is closed. The interior lamp relay then supplies power to the interior lamp circuit. Vehicle speed must be less than 15 kph (9 mph) for the GEM to ground the interior lamp relay. The interior lamps will remain illuminated for a period of up to 25 seconds after all doors are closed or until the ignition is switched from the OFF position, or the GEM receives a vehicle speed signal. Actuating the interior lights from the headlamp switch will operate at any time.
    Illuminated Entry Illuminated entry is activated when a keyless entry keypad switch provides ground on the GEM input or when the GEM receives an unlock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob. The GEM then provides ground to the battery saver and interior lamp relay coils. Illuminated entry is deactivated when the GEM receives a lock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob or if the GEM receives ground inputs from the keyless entry keypad switch lock code. Illuminated entry will also be deactivated when the GEM receives input voltage from the ignition switch.
    Battery Saver The battery saver is activated when the GEM is not receiving voltage input from the ignition switch (off position). The GEM will then provide ground to the battery saver relay coil for a maximum of 30 minutes depending on the state of the interior lamp switch inputs to the GEM. The energized battery saver relay switches voltage to the demand lamp circuit and the interior lamp relay coil. After time-out, the GEM removes ground to the battery saver relay disabling the demand lamp circuit.
    Puddle Lamps The puddle lamp relay operates reverse from the battery saver relay and the interior lamp relay. The puddle lamp relay coil receives voltage when the ignition switch is in the START or RUN position, which disables the circuit to the puddle lamps.
    Inspection and Verification
    1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
    1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


    Visual Inspection Chart Electrical
    • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse 101 (60A)
    • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 226 (10A)
    • Bulb(s)
    • Central junction box (CJB)
    • Generic electronic module (GEM)
    • Connectors

    I have had this problem take you drivers door put your key and un-lock from the out side with key (NO) then open the door push un-lock from the inside button and then set from you remote and it should set if not push un-lock then lock and then do the un-lock with the key. Let me know if that works. what my car did was locked from the inside and I had the problem were it would not work till I un-locked from the out side plus I had to go to radio shack and change the battery from the control.
    Hope good happens.
