My TravelPilot died 6th January 2016 just a week after the warranty sapping all the power from the battery also  :( I did try and claim at my local dealership but they wouldn't do anything,  emailed Blaupunkt direct and they said I could get a reconditioned one through the dealership for £310. 

Looked around and found a guy on ebay who repairs them for £160 with postage,  offered him £110 and he said he could do it for £130 all in -  ebay link below,  it says Scotland but he fixed mine in Poland! Took 10 days from door to door but now working perfectly :) plus he says he'll fix it again if it breaks within 12 months! 

Item number : 252287579918 

Changed my battery as it was 6years old,  and the repairer said that low power is why these units go faulty! Makes sense as it died after a holiday and the car had been left in cold conditions for a week.. 

Hope this info helps!

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Focus Blaupunkt Cd Player issue!!!!

I hav an 03 and it exhibited the same problems; on off on off nothing works. I discovered this repair 2 days ago and it works perfectly and I am one happy camper.

1. Start by pulling the main fuse for the radio (if you already haven't)
2. Re insert the fuse and turn the radio on (nevermind the on off sequence). Insert a music CD, it will take one.
3. Pull the fuse again, count to five and re insert fuse.
4. When the CD starts to play, use the menus to get down to the factory default settings and ask it to reset to factory.
5. And you are now working again. Or you should be. It basically is a processor and it operates just like your home PC whn it needs a reload. It searchs to the default drive which is the CD player.

Good Luck everyone!

Won't start. No lights or power of any sort.

Check grounds. 3 main grounds are battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body. Sounds like yours is battery to body.

I Installed apioneerdeh150mp in my 95jeep limited I need code to reboots system.

not sure if hard reboot will be bad (but think about it: if the battery fails, which will eventually happen, shouldn't the Jeep's computer system be able to handle a power blip?)

find batteries and disconnect (and reconnect) them (could be simple car battery does it, but I suspect you'll need to find a button battery of sorts on a logic board hidden under dash or enclosed in weather proof box with wires coming out of it under the hood?)

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

2001 Ford Explorer Sport, how to recalibrate throttle/pedal position sensor

First, test your tps with a multimeter to make sure it is good. Explorers and mustangs are knownto go through them every decade or so. Reading should be smooth from no pedal all the way to wide open throttle.

If the tps tests ok, the relearn procedure is simple. Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes or so. Reconnect the terminal and start the engine. Just let it sit there idling for 10 to 15 minutes. Then turn the A/c to max cool on high fan for a minute or two. Drive around and see how it does. You can turn the ac off or not. The end.

999 ford taurus if it sits for 2 or 3 days the battery is dead how do you track a short

Use a volt meter or test light, disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery post. If the meter reads 12 volts or if the test light is lit start pulling one fuse at a time until the meter reads zero or the test light goes out.

Make note of what circuit the fuse protects then start working your way back from there. It cold be as simple as a dome light being left on but you need to narrow down where the problem may be located.

I hope this helps, good luck!

Travelpilot fx fader

Open the fuse panel and remove each fuse while the radio is playing. The ignition key is in "ACC on" to ascertain which fuse connects to the T_Pilot. Make a note when you've identified which fuse is the T-Pilot's circuit. Replace each to original position after 30 seconds. By removing the fuse, you disconnected all power to the Travel Pilot. When you replaced the fuse, there will be a delay as the Travel Pilot reboots itself, maybe 2 to 5 minutes. If its fully functional again, then it was a software glitch Ford deliberately programmed to psyche you into trading-in your old Ford and upgrading to a newer model.

Can't start 58 reg Keyless entry/start C-Max

Check your Owners Kit for a Owners ID Card is about all I can add. The Security system is suppose to read your chip in the FOB. All I can think of is to have the Keyless Entry Card in hand(inside Kit) while you touch the Start button.
Disconnecting the car battery will reset the Security or do any good, because your car wants a Signal from something. I am guessing Ford would have to give you something to substitute for a dead FOB.
If not, shame on Ford. They finally created a problem by getting too fancy and forgetting basic accessibility. You might try leaving the Key turned in the outside door and then pressing the Start button or entering the Keyless Code. Just don't forget to pull the keys out of the door if the engine starts.
