DSC Power 832 - Keypad Locked - and alarm

My parents’ house has an old DSC Power 832. House is empty now and the system is now disconnected from the Alarm Company. This morning the alarm set off (don`t know yet what it caused it) and the real estate agent went to turn it off unsuccessfully.
I arrived and tried to turn off the alarm but the keypad is lighted and locked. The Failuire light is on. It won’t accept any code.
Tried pushing 2 secs the *,nothing happened. With #, I get a long and some short beeps, but won´t unlock.
Any suggestions are welcome.

It's probable that the battery failed, and locked things up (the siren taps the battery, heavily). Try powering the system down, fully (AC power and battery) then reconnect the power.
