Bad GEM YC3Z 14B205-CB. Cannot find replacement

I have an early 2000 7.3 4x4 Limited Excursion. The GEM connected to the under dash fuse box will not shut down and drained the batteries. Mechanic found the issue, but we cannot locate a replacement. Any recommendations?

Factory re-programming for a GEM was around $125-$175 in addition to the price of the unit, and the dealer is the only one who can do the programming. At least that was how it was a couple years ago.

I bought my GEM on Ebay. I got the exact P# so no programming required. If you find some listings where they are parting out a truck send the seller a message and ask if they have the GEM.

Further searching looks like these are being reman'd by this Co. I think your best bet is call around to local and surrounding states salvage yards.
