Recommended Posts

Hi i have a ademco microtech accord xpc i believe and want to replace it wirh new keypad and control board. 

Would like to keep the existing sensors and wiring. 

The keypad on this one is not responding properly and the fuse is blowing on the panel every 6 months or so. Thanks

Further diagnosis with a multimeter is required.

The least likely thing popping the fuses would be the panel.

Replacing only the panel will rule out a keypad but there are many other parts of the system.

Agreed a fuse is their to protect the control panel, they dont blow because the there is something wrong with the control panel.

keypad one because that keeps going blank but than also the bell one gos i think because that stops working

Either way get rid of that junk and if you have fault you will have to fix it 

 

So Honeywell flex might do the job for DIY fix , I assume you know how to programme an alarm? Otherwise local installer maybe your best option 

 

You may end up having to open some detectors , but they probably as old as the panel and plastics can break 

 

If your not on tight budget then get all new sensors aswell 

 

If your not on tight budget and still want to reduce cost , then probably what your protecting isn't worth it anyway , so just scrap and leave it on the wall and have no alarm 

 

Otherwise wireless DIY pyronix enforcer will do you....

What makes you think the fault is in the 4 inches that you cut off? Where does it run from to? By that, I mean does it run under the floor or around the skirting board, under the carpet etc?

I read it as put on a fly lead. 

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

It could be interpreted that way I suppose, but I read it that he removed 4" of cable off the keypad cable.

Hi thanks for the replies. I did that because the keypad was next to cellar door and it kept hitting it when opening, not ideal but was like that when i moved in. Its been ok since i cut wire but most of the time the fuse last  months so not sure if thats fixed it.

 

I Do realy want to replace the kepad because some buttons have become unresponsive. Any suggestions just for the keypad would be great thanks.
