I changed the batteries then initialized it and it won't work. I can access it with the emergency card. I tried to reprogram it and it always says can't establish connection with the lock. It has...

The Unican 1000 locksets are pushbutton locks and do not use a card for access. I think you may not have referenced the proper model that you are having problems with.

I'm including a link to Kaba Ilco products page where you can research your model of lock:

You may find that your lock is under the E-Plex series, which use card access.

Also to be found on that page is a link to "Literature and Support" which you can expand to take you to the proper information grid for your model of lock.

The Literature Grid contains links to PDF files which have headings for the Manual, Parts List, Instructions Charts, etc. The Instructions Charts may be of most interest to you because they contain troubleshooting information.

In order to view these PDF files,, you will need Adobe Reader installed on your computer. There is a link on the Grid page to Adobe Reader if you don't already have it installed.

Near the top of the Literature Grid page you will find a link called "Contact Us", and under that link you will find links to Customer Service and Support and Technical Support which will allow you further assistance by Kaba Ilco support, either by email or by calling them toll-free.

I hope this information helps. Good luck!

Lost GMA Card for Kaba ilco 780 FDU. How can i get another?

When you set up the system, you should have made at least 3 GMA's. Hopefully they did that and there are two other GMA's in a safe place. We keep ours locked up with the other key masters.

If you don't have any GMA's at all, you will have to call KABA. They will give you a reset code to reboot your FDU and then you can make new GMA's. You will have to remake all the other cards as well. It will be like starting over.

Good luck.

Need to know how to re program our kara ilco when i swip the gma card it says card error or wrong card is being used

The Kaba Ilco 1000 lock does not use any sort of card reader for programming--it is strictly a push button lock.

From this link, which you can cut and paste into your web browser:
you can search for your model of Kaba Ilco lock and click on the box with the picture of your lock.
This will take you to the page for that particular lock. On the right side of any given page, you will see the heading "Documentation" an under that, a link that says "click here to visit the literature and support page".
Following that link will lead you to a grid of the various lock models, with links to the manuals, etc.
These will be PDF files and will require you to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer to view them. If you don't have Adobe Reader, :

You will also find a "Contact Us" link on the first link I gave you, where you can contact Kaba Ilco directly for customer and technical assistance.

I hope I've been able to help. Good luck!
