The General Electronics Module on my 2001 Ford F-250 has failed. It operates the door locks and the door ajar light. It worked perfectly fine before dropping my truck off for a complete paint job. During the paint work, all 4 door latch mechanisms were removed and re-installed. The door ajar light is always since I picked up the truck a few days ago. The right read door lock also would not function from the outside. The body shop looked into it and found that both rear door had a part that was re-installed upside down. They corrected that and the latches now work properly, but they could not fix the door ajar light issue. They sent it over to service and they determined the General Electric Module had failed.
Question: Could the improper installation of the door latches cause any kind of short circuit that would fry the module? The quote to repair even with a discount is $550. I can’t understand how a module would failed while sitting in a body shop for 3 weeks.
