Hi. Kwikset makes at least 4 different models of electronic lock.
Here is a link whereby you can select your particular version and hopefully get to the bottom of your issue. Since it is necessary for you to get immediate help you may want to call a lock smith.

I have the kwikset keypad that is supposed to light up and it did for awhile since I've had it for several months and now all of a sudden it won't light up. The batteries are fine and I tried new batt

"My keypad won't light up when door is locked when you push lock won't light up green."

Try this:

To make the keys light up when you want to enter your code, you have to push the lock button on the keypad first. If the keypad light never comes on, open the door and manually lock the interior lock, then press the keypad lock button. The above instructions should then work.

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

This may be something as simple as a pinched or grounded wire during installation or a problem with the internal circuitry.
