DSC 832 problem with wireless keys

System: DSC 832, PC5501 keyboard, PC5132-433 wireless receiver, 4 wireless zones, 2 WS4939-433 wireless keys. I have sucessfully programmed the system, every feature works except the wireless keys. I carefully "enrolled" them according to the manual. I am not sure that I have programmed the "function" buttons properly as the manual is not clear on how to do this. Now neither key works. Any advice? Thanks, Steve

From the wireless reciever manual:

Enroll Wireless Keys
1. At a system keypad, enter[*][8][Installerís code] to go to the Installerís
Programming section.
2. Enter programming section [804].
3. Enter a 2-digit number [41]-[56] to assign the wireless key a slot. These
numbers correspond to wireless key numbers 01-16.
4. Enter the keyís ESN. The entry must be six digits. If an older key with a 5-
digit ESN is being enrolled, add the digit [0] to the beginning of the ESN.
(E.g. ESN=61234, enter 061234)
5. The key is now enrolled on the system. Record the serial number and the
assigned slot number in the programming worksheets in the back of this
manual.
6. Repeat steps 3 - 5 until all wireless keys have been enrolled.
7. (PC5020 / PC501 PC501X only) By default, all wireless keys are assigned to
Partition 1. To assign keys to Partition 2, enable the appropriate options in
programming sections [91] and [92].
NOTE: A wireless key can only be assigned to one partition.
8. To exit press [#].

Program the WLS909-433 or WLS919-433 Function Buttons
WLS909-433 and WLS919-433 wireless keys have four programmable function
buttons. You must program a set of four functions for the buttons before any keys will work. After the functions are programmed, when you press and hold one of the four buttons for two seconds, the system will execute the programmed function.
For systems not using partitions: program the function buttons in section [59]. All wireless keys will have the same four functions.
For systems using partitions (PC5020 / PC501X only): all wireless keys assigned to Partition 1 will have the four functions programmed in section [59]. All wireless keys assigned to Partition 2 will have the four functions programmed in section [60]. For example, if function button 1 in Section [59] is programmed for Stay arming, then pressing the first button on wireless keys assigned to Partition 1 will Stay arm Partition 1.
NOTE: Wireless keys will not work when the partition they are assigned to is being accessed for zone bypassing or programming.
1. At a system keypad, enter[*][8][Installerís code].
2. Enter programming section [804].
3. Enter programming section [59] for keys assigned to partition 1, or [60] for
keys assigned to partition 2.
4. For each of the 4 function buttons, enter the 2-digit number of the function you want to select. See the programming worksheets in the back of this manual for a list of function key options.
5. Record your programming choices in the worksheets in the back of the manual.
6. To exit press [#].

The most common mistake is to program the keys into one of the zone slots, or the wrong partition.

DCS problem with wireless keys

Mr Ron, I followed your instructions and it worked! Thanks. I must say that the DSC manuals are sometimes confusing in the way they are organized.

It's one of their biggest failings. The information is all there, but it's not in a linear fashion, you have to flip back and forth in the instructions to get anything done.
