Your alarm system has two power sources, a power transformer that is plugged into an electrical outlet and a backup battery that is located within the control panel box. If the battery is over five years old you will need to replace it. Open the box and you you will see the battery with a set of wires attached to it. Pull the wires off of the battery and take it to a local battery warehouse supply store. They will match it up with a new one. Plug the new battery into the system and your system should restore itself back to normal.

    I replaced the backup battery in the control panel box and when I press the status button on the keypad for the alarm it still says CPU low batt. Why do I still get this message and how can I eliminate it?

Alarm keeps sounding every 2.5 minutes, it works fine on electric, gas and battery and is 12 months old.


Fridge keeps beeping: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

The low battery alarm is sounding for both the console, AND the remote - which I do not have. The ADT people can't come out for another week. How do I silence the beeping? I turned off the status beeps...


The Simon 3 supervises the panel battery and when it's bad or the a/c has been out for a long time..will likely have to charge the battery. A problem arises where the keypad unit will not acknowledge that the battery has been recharged/replaced without you doing a basic power cycle.
Whenever this panel battery is replaced in a Simon 3 (worn out or depleted from no A/C (power-outage)) you should disconnect the A/C adapter, install the new or recharged battery properly and hear the panel tell you it's ok..."..simon ???? is OK.." and THEN plug in the A/c adapter. Assuming the panel is not damaged..it will talk when a suitable battery is installed with the A/c out. If it doesn't talk..check the battery with a test meter. Voltage over 6 volts(approx) is required to make it talk.
Of course, after a total power cycle you will have to set the clock.

Remotes(key fobs) aren't usually supervised (as they are carried away from the site) so it's unlikely it's referring to a key fob low battery. Might you be talking about a remote keypad or device in another part of the house or garage that may have low batteries..finding it and checking the batteries will clear the second part of your beeping.

Is the red or blue light (LED)on the dash lit up solid? If it is then the alarm is in valet mode. 2 ways to take it out of valet. 1) open a door and press lock, unlock then lock again on your Viper remote. 2) turn the ignition on then off and press your valet/override button. The LED should go out and the beeps and status should come back. BTW you can also put the Viper into valet mode using the 2 methods above.

Cant reset alarm


did you try powering dow the system for 30 seconds then powering it back up. if that does not work i would default the system and start over. sometimes security system control get a spike when your are programing or there just in the idle mode and infor mation get pushed to an unprogramable address on the micro processor and the only way to ourge it is to do a hard reset by defaulting the system.

System Low Battery Alarm


You can silence trouble beeps by arming and disarming the system or by pressing status button; however, trouble beeps resume after 4 hours if the trouble condition as not been fixed. You can turn the trouble beeps off in the programming option 40. This should be done by your security professional because any mistake you could change other parameters in the system and the system may not work correctly. Hope this helps
