What is a GEM?

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

From what i understand from the manual and on-line sources, it regulates some of the electrical functions. The reason i ask is b/c the manual says it is on the same fuse as the RCU and the power antenna. The antenna trying to retract unsuccessfully for several hours drained the battery. Or so says the previous owner. Any ideas?
