power series programming help

i am trying to program a home security system using a rfx5501 keypad
i dont understand the programming instructions.
the wireless door contacts are giving me trouble.
i tried *8 5555 and i dont know where to go from there.
i have 2 wireless door contacts
2 motion detectors(hardwired)
1 horn hardwired
all of my efforts result in the contact not registering and a error code 3
since i probably messed up can i reset everthing back to factory and start over
if you can help great please just give me exactly what buttons to push in what order

There's really no boilerplate step-by-step for this stuff. It can't hurt to default to clear any programming errors from fumbling around.

First, look at the instructions for how to use the programming interface on page 8-9 of the installer manual: http://www.gargoylesecurity.com/Down...STALLATION.pdf

Keypad manual: http://www.tbmsecurity.com/Documents/pk5500_eng.pdf

What part of the programming interface are you getting stuck on?

The trouble 3 is because DSC always ships it's alarm controls with the telephone line monitor and communicator turned on by default.
DSC: Power series panels (632, 832, 864); trouble 3 (telephone line trouble) and/or trouble 4 (failure to communicate) shows on new/defaulted system.

DSC panels default to the communicator turned on, and TLM (telephone line monitoring) turned on. If you will not be using the communicator functions, you have to turn them off by entering programming, turning off option 7 in section 015, and option 1 in section 380.

You enroll the wireless devices in programming location 804 first, then you program your basic zone settings in the main system programming.
