    Ok, I was doing a search a while ago trying to find out how to disable a
    door sensor and put a motion in its place. I found someone had said to put
    in a code and go from there, after powering off the unit. I did as it said,
    now there is nothing on the display. It's just used as a local. Any ideas or
    help? TIA

    The code is as follows:

    press 1 & 3 at the same time

    press 16*

    press * # together

    press #20

    | The code is as follows:
    |
    | press 1 & 3 at the same time
    |
    | press 16*

    *16* sets the keypad address for the keypad you are working on.

    |
    | press * # together
    |
    | press #20

    all this does is read out the installer code if you can see the installer
    code then you're ok to program the panel - if you did not see anything
    after *# then the panel is locked. To be more clear...upon power up after
    hitting *# the display should say 20, then push #20 to read out the
    installer code.

    IF you were able to get to the installer code then change it to something
    you want...
    *20 1234 beep (that would change it to 1234...the beep tells you it was
    accepted)

    now you have to go to *56...but you *need* a programming keypad to get there
    (6139 or 6160)
    then you can follow along in the programming manual and find the old zone
    you want to change..you'll change the zone type to 04.

    have you changed to wiring yet?

    Thanks flash. I wasn't real sure what that code was going to do for me, but
    I did find out. I'm completely out of service. When I hold the 1 and 3 down,
    the display will come up 16. When I push anything else it goes blank. I
    guess I've really screwed this one up.
    I couldn't get the installer code BTW.
    Changed to wiring?? Aint following you there.

    While it is likely that your system needs its keypad to be at address
    16, it may be an older one and will like 31 better.

    In order to change that you have to press 1 & 3 within 30 seconds of
    applying power to the keypad.

    Easiest way is just like you did it the first time only use 31 instead
    of 16.

    holding down the * # keys has to be done within 50 seconds of applying
    power to the system. So you will probably have to go through the "power
    off... power on" sequence a few times.

    Good Luck

    While it is likely that your system needs its keypad to be at address 16,
    ALL RIGHT!!!!! That took care of the problem, changing to 31. Now I guess
    what I *REALLY* need to find is an installer manual before I get messing
    around too much. It's a bit different than phone systems, that's what I do
    for a living. I've found out manuals can be your friend, Thanks Joe and
    Crash! I really appreciate the help!

    He means; STOP. Without a programming sheet you may wank out the system and
    never be able to figure out what you did.

    If you didn't get an installer code your dead in the water.

    Oh, not to worry. The guy that installed it is coming by when he gets back
    from vacation. I just didn't want to call him while he was umm, drinking. I
    had left him a voice mail. Don't worry, I'm going no farther. Thanks again
    guys.

    Ok, I understand. In my business it's the same way. You all don't have to
    worry about any more questions. My buddy that installed it is on vacation
    and I didn't want to bother him. He's coming by when he gets back. I thought
    I could do it without his help. But...
    Thanks again for the help.

    I did find the installer code, but as I said in a previous response, it aint
    going no farther.
