SOURCE: my DSC security system is reading

First of all go to your security box.Now you will have to find where all the sensors conect to the panell.These area's on the board are called zones such as zone 1 zone 2 and so forth.Chech and make sure no wires have came loose from the screw termanils also make sure their is no corrision (good contacts are key).If this doesent work you will need a magnet find out which zone you are having trouble with such as front door back door window ect.Now their are two different sensers one is a flush mounted senser this will look like a little box on the frame of what ever it is securing.The other one will be a inset one this will be harder to find.It will be inside the frame of what ever it is securing.In any case you wil need to run the magnet over this device and see if the panel will reset.If this hapens then you know that their is something wrong with the orig. magnet.(When you shut the door or window the orig. magnet will align with the senser).Some times the distance between the senser and the magnet will effect the senser.If the senser is a flush mounted senser then their will be some wires you can acess to see if they are making contact.

((((( I DO NOT RECOMENT THIS ONE. IF YOU TRY THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT BE PROTECTING THIS ZONE AND SOMEONE CAN NOW BREAK IN )))))The next thing to try is to simply look on the panel door and read where it says which resistor it needs and where it goes on the panel in relationship to the correct zone buy the resistor and install it in the panel.

((((( I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS ONE. IF YOU TRY THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT BE PROTECTING THIS ZONE AND SOMEONE CAN NOW BREAK IN)))))The next thing to try is the zone bypass.The instructions on how to do this should be on the back of the key pad door.

The next thing to try is to look in the senser to see if it has a battery.Some sensers have a battery and they need to be replaced from time to time.Now I have been asuming that this is a senser on a door or a window but their are other sensors that are optional on this panel as well.Check all wires on these batterys and make sure all outer housings are securly on the sensors.

If none of this works then you probably either have something wrong with the wireing or the panel its self is faulty.If so contact a security technician.

SOURCE: I have a DSC 832

Did you have the old battery still in it for 5 years?If you did,I would almost guarantee that the battery leaked and junked out the system.It may not be obviously noticeable,but a battery left in a unit that long with no use,will always do that.Whenever something battery powered is not going to be used for more than a month,you should take it out.If you can remove the back to examine it,you may find something.If you think you got battery acid on your hand or wherever,baking soda is a neutralizer for acid.It would be worth a look if you can though.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg

Why security system will not arm on 2001 honda accord?


The alarm probably thinks there is an open circuit like a door or a hood or a trunk. Check those switches by inspecting the wiring to each switch. Temporarily ground each switch wire and see if the alarm arms. Good luck.

I have a dsc power 832, and have replaced the battery, but i can not get it returned to the ready state as it shows " secure system before arming, and memory says -lid tamper", I have checked the plun


Hello Frank,

Great systems... Updatable, configurable...
even repairable... 832 is a "mature" system...
and the codes you get are not particularly helpful
if you don't have the ALARMS mapped.

There should be a map... (don't worry)
"-Lid" most likely is NOT the device you
are working on... Your ALARM condition
is FIRST on the warning list...

If you were given INSTALL notes with your system
you can use those... (instruction at bottom).

A simple area motion detector might also need a battery...
GLASS BREAK, SMOKE, HEAT, WATER... hard wired window devices...

(I'm guessing)... but FOR A FACT any device could
be mounted several ways... but control boxes
(at least in MY DAY had door & panel "TAMPERS")).

You obviously have a control panel
(you are getting system status "remarks)

It has been a long time since I have been around a DSC 832.
They are quite an excellent... and versatile security platform.

Lots of options and opportunities.

FIRST thing you will want to do is to inventory the system
to determine how many and what you are "monitoring..."

DSC PC5010 V2 0 Important Notice Page 4

Do look at this PDF ... (notice).
There are several manuals available
but before anyone can SERIOUSLY help you...
you need to walk the system and find all your devices.

Hope this helps

2006 buick alarm can not be shut off.....


After the key is put into what? The OEM alarm is armed and disarmed through the driver's door key cylinder. Insert the key into the key hole of the driver's door, turn to unlock, this disarms the factory alarm. Turn to lock, this arms the factory alarm. Now, if you have an aftermarket alarm this procedure does not apply.

U are probly opening the door then hitting ur doorlock button then shutting the door. The factory system is being armed whwn u loxk the door. Try shutting the door without loxking it. See if ur factory alarm light came on. If that solves ye issue, u need to some minor rewire on ur alarm.

My 350hv just shuts off randomly. I can arm it and come back later and it is off and my doors are unlocked!


Sorry, but it is my opinion that car alarms are really, really foolish.
Cars are extremely hostile environments for delicate electronics.
Adding alarms is begging for problems that will leave you without a car.
If you lock any valuables in the trunk, out of sight, there is no reason for an alarm. All an alarm will do is either fail and prevent you from driving, or fail and get you a ticket for a false alarm.

How doyou disarm the factory alarm system in a 1994 jeep grand cherokee my alarm system keeps shutting down the whole car it is a real pain to get it started again i just want to totally shut the alarm...


The security alarm system on the 1994 Jeep Cherokee arms itself on any normal exit from the vehicle, i.e. ignition off, open door, lock door with power door locks, close door. If the doors are locked with the key, it does not arm.
If the battery is disconnected, then reconnected, the alarm system will go into powerup alarm mode. The lights will flash, but the horn will not blow.
The alarms can be disarmed by a keyless vehicle remote or by unlocking either of the front doors or the read lift gate with the key. If the key method does not work with any of those three entrances, there is a problem either with the input to the alarm module or the module itself.
There is a switch in both front doors and the tailgate which is activated by manualy unlocking those doors. The alarms can be disabled by permanently grounding the wire going from either of those switches to the alarm module, but this will remove all theft protection.
The best thing to do is to find out why the system is going off in the first place. It could just be a glitch, a loose connection that can be fixed fairly easily and keep your theft protection intact.

Alarm won't fulley arm


What part is not arming? Doors, trunk, sensors, etc.? If your alarm is wired to a dome light with a delay, the alarm may not arm until after the dome light shuts off, sometimes 30 seconds or more. Also check to see if any switches are stuck, damaged, or rusty, especially on the hood and trunk if installed. DC
