    Ive installed a new Siren and it works fine now except that when i trip
    the alarm the siren doesn sound????
    I do the Bell Test and it Sounds fine and i can make it go off
    manually but for some reason it wont go ff when the Alarm is tripped.
    Any Idea??

    Are you sure you're actually tripping the alarm?? Have you allowed the
    exit delay to expire??
     
  3. ..... and did you make sure that the zones are programmed to activate the
    siren.

    I think he also said that the bell test function sounds the siren, that
    would also mean that the fuse is OK.

    Assuming that the bell test function does sound the siren, my guess is that
    either he didn't wait for the exit delay to expire or tried to trip a
    home/away zone.

    If thats not it then the zone programming should be checked or it could be
    that the board itself is defective

    Thanks , I tripped the alarm correctly and the Keypad Sounds but no
    Siren. There are no trouble Codes, I dont have a manual that tells me
    how to do the actual programming, just what the owners manual tells me,
    basic stuff, not technical stuff. Im pretty sure its a minor
    Programming thing, but im pretty much out of options now, apart from
    hitting random buttons and hoping for the best, There is one other
    quirk that wasnt present prior to this, When i Turn on the Door Chime
    feature, It 'chimes' not only when i open doors or windows but also
    everytime the motion detector senses someone ??? Apart from these 2
    problems everything seems perfect and there is no trouble code showing.
    I might have to break down and call a Tech, unless someone knows how to
    fix this !!!!!

    My recollection of the 2500 is that the keypad sounds on entry delay, not on
    an alarm, are you sure you have a 2500?, in an earlier post you mentioned
    about the terminals being labelled SPKR, I recall the terminals being
    labelled as BELL, not SPKR on the 2500.

    If the motion chimes when activated then either the programming has been
    changed or the motion detector wires have been moved to a zone programmed as
    a perimeter zone.
    Have you changed or attempted to either change or default the programming ?.
    The 2500 is very easy to program and you be able to find a programming
    manual for it if you google.

    Umm Frank if the bell test function works it isn't the fuse, my guess is he
    programmed all his zones with a 1 or 3 as the first digit
