Ademco Vista 15p Fault Codes 09 and 107


I have an Ademco Vista 15p system and it is displaying fault codes 09 and 107. I only have 6 zones, so I don't think I need a zone extender. I tried disabling zone 09, but I am not sure I am pressing the correct sequence. Unfortunately I don't have an alphanumeric keypad, just the basic led one.

Here's what I was trying to do to bypass zone 09:

Press * until I get to 09 then * until I see a 10.
Then I enter 00 to try to disable and then * to confirm.
Then I press *999 to exit the programming mode.
After a minute the alarm starts continuously beeping so I enter the master code and OFF.
Then it still displays 09 and 107 fault codes.

Thanks for any help!

I'm afraid that you don't have the right keystroke sequence, at all.

Were I to guess, I'd say that you have zone 9 accidentally programmed into the system, which is making the system look for a hardwired zone expander (the trouble 107)

Without the correct alpha (6160) keypad, this is dicy at best, because you may have made changes trying to program zones blindly; but here goes...follow along with the *56 instructions.

To delete zone 9:

Go to program with [installer code] + 8 + 00
0* (set to confirm, NO)
09* (select zone 9)
* (accept the summary screen and move to next prompt)
00* (to set the zone as unused)
press * 7-8 times to get back to the zone select prompt.
press 00 to get out of *56 programming.

You may have to simply wait until the programming times out if you can't find your way back to the exit prompt.
