There are some companies which can fix the Travelpilot FX. Repair will cost approximately €150,- to €200,-. In Holland Ford also has a trading system for the Travelpilot FX. It is possible to change a defective Travelpilot FX for a completely remanufactured one for approximately €500,-. Normally a new travelpilot FX will cost about €1500,- to €2250,- (price depends on which type of travelpilot FX you need).
Normally the display of the instrument cluster must switch off 30 minutes after the car is locked. The display will light up when the car is unlocked. If the display stays on this means there is a CAN-bus problem which prevents the CAN-bus system from entering sleep mode. A defective bluetooth/Voicecontrol module is known to be causing this problem but in theory all (defective) CAN-bus modules can prevent the CAN-bus system from entering sleep mode.
Thanks! I actually live in the Netherlands so maybe I will just take the car to the local Ford dealer and mention this to them, especially because the new option seems a bit pricey .
