Ademco Vista 20SE will not exit programming...

We have an Ademco Vista 20SE panel here. We had a fault on Zone 11 that we were unable to locate, so I disabled the zone. The panel went into programming fine with 4112 800. It went through the zone programming (*56) no problem. But I cant get it to exit programming with *99. SoI decided to go back into the zone programming and name each zone properly with the Alpha descriptions. I went into Zone 1.when it asked me for custom words, I mistakenly pressed no. It came up with Z01 Zone 01 and its stuck on that screen. I had pressed * wont do anything. Ive put in the arm/disarm code to see if I could get it to recognize that.nothing. Its still stuck on that one screen. Any suggestions?

It was waiting for the next command. Look at the instructions on page 66-70 of the installer manual:

By now, program mode has probably timed out. But basically you were on a summary screen, and the only input it would take, at that point, was the * key.
