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.

The beeping signals the loss of connection between the main unit and monitoring station - at a regular interval the unit tries to report its status to the monitoring center; when that fails it triggers the error light and the beeping.
Since you have canceled the previous account you will have to reprogram the unit to work as a stand-alone unit so you will need the Installer Code to make the required programming changes - assuming that the previous company hasn't locked the board. If it has then a full reprogram or even a complete replacement of the central unit might be necessary. In either case this is a job for a certified service man, all you can do is to unplug it till one comes to your house.

Since you do not have the code you have 3 basic options:

  1. Call your local DSC dealer/installer and have them come out to fix the system. However, be advised that in all likelihood they will want yo to start having your system monitored for a monthly fee. Typically there will be a sticker on the alarm system panel with a 1-800 number for whoever did the original installation.
  2. Try troubleshooting yourself. Usually trouble lights indicate a dead battery, a blown fuse or something more serious. You can replace the battery and fuses on you own, however for everything else, see #1
  3. Disconnect the system entirely. Remove the panel dooor, inside you will find a wiring schematic, refer to this for your specific system. Look for the AC power, typically the leftmost red and black wires. Using a small screwdriver disconnect the AC wires and cap them with electrical page, Next unplug the phone line, and finally disconnect the backup battery.

It could be the battery in the main box or the power adapter for that box. First make sure that wall adapter is plugged in and that that outlet has power ( plug something else, like a lamp, in.) If the outlet is good and the adapter was plugged in properly you will need a multimeter to check the battery or adapter or you could just try a new battery.

system trouble can mean that you might have a faulty expander somewhere. an expander is used to extend the zones on your current system. if not you might have a faulty pacife connected to the system go around all the pacifes and check if the red light comes on. if not replace it.

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

See Figures 1 and 2
Listings of the trouble for the various engine control system covered in this manual are located in this section. Remember that a code only points to the faulty circuit, NOT necessarily to a faulty component. Loose, damaged or corroded connections may contribute to a fault code on a circuit when the sensor or component is operating properly. Be sure that the components are faulty before replacing them, especially the expensive ones.

Fig. Fig. 1: ALDL/DLC terminal identification for 1987-97 vehicles, except 1997 models with a 16-pin DLC
The Assembly Line Diagnostic Link (ALDL) or Data Link Connector (DLC) may be located under the dashboard, and is sometimes covered with a plastic cover labeled DIAGNOSTIC CONNECTOR.

  1. The diagnostic trouble codes can be read by grounding test terminal B . The terminal is most easily grounded by connecting it to terminal A (internal ECM ground). This is the terminal to the right of terminal B on the top row of the ALDL connector.
  2. Once the terminals have been connected, the ignition switch must be moved to the ON position with the engine not running.
  3. The Service Engine Soon or Check Engine light should be flashing. If it isn't, turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the jumper wire. Turn the ignition ON and confirm that the light is now on. If it is not, replace the bulb and try again. If the bulb still will not light, or if it does not flash with the test terminal grounded, the system should be diagnosed by an experienced driveability technician. If the light is OK, proceed as follows.
  4. The code(s) stored in memory may be read through counting the flashes of the dashboard warning lamp. The dash warning lamp should begin to flash Code 12. The code will display as one flash, a pause and two flashes. Code 12 is not a fault code. It is used as a system acknowledgment or handshake code; its presence indicates that the ECM can communicate as requested. Code 12 is used to begin every diagnostic sequence. Some vehicles also use Code 12 after all diagnostic codes have been sent.
  5. After Code 12 has been transmitted 3 times, the fault codes, if any, will each be transmitted 3 times. The codes are stored and transmitted in numeric order from lowest to highest.

The order of codes in the memory does not indicate the order of occurrence.
  1. If there are no codes stored, but a driveability or emissions problem is evident, the system should be diagnosed by an experienced driveability technician.
  2. If one or more codes are stored, record them. Refer to the applicable Diagnostic Code chart in this section.
  3. Switch the ignition OFF when finished with code retrieval or scan tool readings.

After making repairs, clear the trouble codes and operate the vehicle to see if it will reset, indicating further problems.

We just picked up a 1985 Cadillac Deville with 42,000 original miles. The car had not been driven in 4 years. It was given a tune up, all liquids were changed. When we changed the gas filter there was...


Yes, water could be in the gasoline. Try to run a few tanks of gas through it to clear up that problem.

Are there any engine codes on this car that are readable? Maybe a throttle position sensor is not giving good data to the computer.

BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING
  1. NOTE: The following explains how to activate the Trouble Code signal light in the instrument cluster. Before suspecting the C-4 or CCC system, or any of its components as being faulty, check the ignition system (distributor, timing, spark plugs and wires). Check the engine compression, the air cleaner and any of the emission control components that are not controlled by the ECM. Also check the intake manifold, the vacuum hoses and hose connectors for any leaks. Check the carburetor mounting bolts for tightness. NOTE: For information regarding computer control/troubleshooting of the Electronic and Digital fuel injected vehicles, please refer to Section 5 of this manual. The following symptoms could indicate a possible problem area with the C-4 or CCC systems:
    1. Detonation
    2. Stalling or rough idling when the engine is cold
    3. Stalling or rough idling when the engine is hot
    4. Missing
    5. Hesitation
    6. Surging
    7. Poor gasoline mileage
    8. Sluggish or spongy performance
    9. Hard starting when engine is cold
    10. Hard starting when the engine is hot
    11. Objectionable exhaust odors
    12. Engine cuts out
    13. Improper idle speed (CCC only). As a bulb and system check, the Check Engine light will come on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position but the engine is not started. The Check Engine light will also produce the trouble code/codes by a series of flashes which translate as follows: When the diagnostic test lead (C-4) or terminal (CCC) under the instrument panel is grounded, with the ignition in the ON position and the engine not running, the Check Engine light will flash once, pause, and then flash twice in rapid succession. This is a Code 12, which indicates that the diagnostic system is working. After a long pause, the Code 12 will repeat itself two more times. This whole cycle will then repeat itself until the engine is started or the ignition switch is turned OFF. When the engine is started, the Check Engine light will remain on for a few seconds and then turn off. If the Check Engine light remains on, the self-diagnostic system has detected a problem. If the test lead (C-4) or test terminal (CCC) is then grounded, the trouble code will flash (3) three times. If more than one problem is found to be in existence, each trouble code will flash (3) three times and then change to the next one. Trouble codes will flash in numerical order (lowest code number to highest). The trouble code series will repeat themselves for as long as the test leads or terminal remains grounded. A trouble code indicates a problem with a given circuit. For example, trouble code 14 indicates a problem in the cooling sensor circuit. This includes the coolant sensor, its electrical harness and the Electronic Control Module (ECM). Since the self-diagnostic system cannot diagnose every possible fault in the system, the absence of a trouble code does not necessarily mean that the system is trouble-free. To determine whether or not a problem with the system exists that does not activate a trouble code, a system performance check must be made. This job should be left to a qualified service technician. In the case of an intermittent fault in the system, the Check Engine light will go out when the fault goes away, but the trouble code will remain in the memory of the ECM. Therefore, if a trouble code can be obtained even though the Check Engine light is not on, it must still be evaluated. It must be determined if the fault is intermittent or if the engine must be operating under certain conditions (acceleration, deceleration, etc.) before the Check Engine light will come on. In some cases, certain trouble codes will not be recorded in the ECM until the engine has been operated at part throttle for at least 5-18 minutes. On the C-4 system, the ECM erases all trouble codes every time that the ignition is turned off. In the case of intermittent faults, a long term memory is desirable. This can be produced by connecting the orange connector/lead from terminal S of the ECM directly to the battery (or a hot fuse panel terminal). This terminal must always be disconnected immediately after diagnosis as it puts an undue strain on the battery. On the CCC system, a trouble code will be stored until the terminal R at the ECM has been disconnected from the battery for at least 10 seconds.
