I Am Now Having The Water Leak Issue Into The Gem Due To Faulty Windshield Seal. It Is Starting To Cause electrical System Malfunctions. The Following Is A Tsb Released By ford: ford Special Message #15773 Various electrical Conditions Resulting From Water Intrusion Into The Gem/cjb Some 1997-2002 Expedition And 1998-2002 Navigator Vehicles May Exhibit Various Unusual electrical Conditions, Including But Not Limited To: Front Or Rear Blower Or Eatc Staying On With Key Out Of The Ignition, Radio Staying On After Doors Opened And Key Out Of Ignition, Wiper Circuit Failure Codes, And Multiple System Warning Lights With ‘short To Power’ Or ‘low Battery Voltage’ Dtcs. These Symptoms Most Often Occur After A Rain Or Snow. This May Be Due To Gem/cjb Water Intrusion Resulting From A Windshield Water Leak. To Service, Remove The Gem And Cjb From The Vehicle, Separate Them And Inspect For Water Contamination Or Corrosion. If Found In Either Component, Replace Both Components And Completely Reseal The Windshield. After Doing Some Research On The Internet I Have Found That I Am Not The Only Soul Experiencing These Issues. Apparently ford Is Not Fixing This Obvious Manufacturing Defect At Their Expense But Passing It To The Customers. This Is Obviously A ford Issue That They Have Known About For Quite Some Time. Please Help With Resolving This Issue As Some People Have Spent In The Thousands Fixing Issues That This Water Intrusion Issue Has Caused. *tr
