If the system is defaulted you should be able to flip the front of the cover down then enter 4321. If it worked you will hear PLEASE SELECT START MENU. If it did then you enter ADD Then Access Code Until it says MASTER CODE then enter DONE then press 4 digit code then enter DONE again Then Close cover. If you don't have a home line or system has troubles or lo batteries it will beep reguarless of codes on the sytem. You can press disarm then 4 digit code. Normanly if there is a problem the STATUS light stays lit even with all devices closed or not tripped. To disable beeps you flip down cover then enter 4321 then DELETE then OPTION then Look To your bottom right there should be a 2 digit code that says panal beeps press those 2 digits then DONE. If you could get the system to say select menu then NONE OF THIS WILL WORK.

Unfortunately, without a code, there is not much you can do besides disconnecting the system. Do you own or rent? If you rent, call the landlord, he has to fix it immediately, as going off in the middle of the night and disturbing your rest is not acceptable. If you own it, find the main control box, which is most likely in a closet somewhere, and disconnect the 110AC and back-up battery. If you want the system to function, you will most likely need to call a local alarm company. Stay away from the large nationals, service tends to be poor. Find a local company, they depend on the individual customer to stay in business and you will get much better service.
Hope this helps.

Did you run sensor test(drop down cover enter you code pess test button then done button. let run 5 min. close cover press status button If that fixes great. If not, you need multi meter. remove battery put metter on leeds coming off panel. You should see voltage there at least equal to the battery. If not then you may see the the red wire for battery has a lump in it about 1" long that is a fuse. remove wire from panel and meter for resistance/continuity/ohms what ever you want to call it. if there is no resistance or an open ckt then replace that wire.if you see resistance in wire then you have a bad panel.

Don't have the access code

Do you mean the access code for turning off an alarm or arming the system before leaving? If so, NO. You would have to know the original code to even enter programming to change the access code. Contact your realtor and have them get you in contact with the previous owner. Find out the code from them. If they properly removed their code before moving from the house use the default code, 1234. Good Luck.
