Are they the same age?

Facelift mondeos (53 onwards) will flash on unlock

Prefacelift mondeos (01-03) will only flash on double lock

Although just to add,

You can get the prefacelift mondeos to flash on unlock by replacing the GEM with one from a facelift car.

However, this can cause issues if your prefacelift mondeo has the 6 speed wiper control. As the facelift mondeos don't have this, just auto wipe. So you'll lose the 6 speed and it'll just work on one intermittent speed, unless I'm mistaken.

But that's not much of an issue for most.

Hope that helps

ur mistaken on that front to some degree.

 

yes, this can be a problem if you choose the wrong version of GEM module - DO NOT use a ghia or above spec GEM module, but get one from a lesser spec facelift model ( LX to zetec etc ) then you should be fine with the 6 speed wiper & such as they dont have the auto lights & auto wipers on them unless its an odd spec special order. ( i have a facelift gem in my pre-facelift mota & its 6-speed wipers works fine )

 

the main trouble you have with the GEM upgrade is the hazard warning lights can be glitchy depending on the switch the pre-facelift model has fitted - facelift has 1 switch type, pre-facelift has 2, 1 works no problem the other one has to be pressed twice to both activate & then de-activate the hazards - swap out the button for thecorrect type & it solves the problem  :D

My facelift Mondeo (Zetec Tdci) has 6-speed wiper control & it also flashes the hazards on lock/unlock.

Could be there are 2 types of GEM module one for 6-speed and one for auto wipe.

 

Post above just beat me to it - there are 2 different types as I expected.
