    *8
    installer code
    * (keypad programming)
    900
    try turning option 3 off
    that's your keypad tamper

    if it still doesn't clear it, pull the a/c and battery on the panel, sometimes trouble conditions "get stuck" in the panel, and a simple power cycle clears it

    Thanks for the quick feedback, I did not think about the Keypad Tamper,

    I will give it a try.

    sorry, option 3 – on
    go figure turning the option on turns the tamper off

    Also try pressing *6 master code and goto the event history. Use the arrow keys to go back in time and it should show you exactly what the tamper is from.

    :-< man oh man,,, Since I done this install about a month ago and got stuck with this issue. I have totally forgotten the installer code….. can you believe it.  :'( My brother in law gave me the 2 codes, and he can't even remember.. LOL

    I have the master code but no installer code.

    So I am doing *8… try and guess the code try twice then enter 6666 then exit then try it all over again. to avoid keypad lock out. LOL

    I really do not feel like resetting the panel. But unless there are other suggestions on ways to get / reset the installer code. then it's back to square 1  ::)

    Danny,
    I have a similar problem trying to reset the general system tamper.  I have RFK5500 V1.3 and PK5500 V1.3N keypads bussed to an 1832 with regular alarm wire (bus was working for an FBII system just removed so I think the cabling is good. The "General System Tamper" error is on both keypads.

    DLS 5 gives the error via a TL260/Ethernet link as "Wireless Module Keybus Problem".

    At the keypad I tried going to and resetting option 3 "keyboard tamper" but it comes up with
    "0460 … Enter Data" ???

    The manual says that 0460 means "Version 4.6", but if that was true and obviously a fixed version number…why would DSC want you to put in "Data"???

    The manual is no help on this one.

    Both pads seem to operate correctly as far as arming/disarming/etc, except I cannot get one to broadcast the ASCII labels to the other like the instructions state. That's not a biggie, but maybe a clue.

    Ideas?

    Best regards,

    Bruce

    Do you have your keypads assigned to different slots?
    *8
    installer code
    000
    0
    18 (that's partition 1 slot 8)
    ###

    set one keypad on 18, then goto the other and set it to 11

    then
    *8
    installer code
    902
    wait a minute
    903
    ###

    You might have both keypads in the same slot
