Hi, not sure if this is okay to ask this question under this topic but Lefty was of such help with our last problem thought it wouldn't hurt.
We have a home alarm that was installed when we had our house built 9 years ago. Today it suddenly armed itself and when I put in the code it wouldn't turn off. Then when I opened the door it started the siren going off outside(actually the siren is in the attic, but is really loud outside)We couldn't get it to turn off, so we had to turn it off at the fuse box. Which of course turned other stuff off in the house. So my husband disconnected the back up battery and unplugged the main plug for the alarm from the outlet the people had wired it to. Turned the fuse back on and everything else works now.
But not the alarm, of course because it has no power going to it.
What could be the problem and how do we fix it. Is there some way to ck it to find out the problem. Thanks for any and all help with this, its very appreciated.

Thanks Sprky for your help. Yes you were right, after calling the company that installed our home alarm and the person talking me though some things to try, we decided it wasn't gonna be fixed this easily. So he sent a tech out and the panel did have to be replaced. Now it works like new.
