Installation manual: http://cms.dsc.com/download.php?t=1&id=17242

If you have a cellular communicator installed, many of the older models have 2-G models which are starting to be sun-set out by the cell providers. The only fix is to go into programming section 382 and turn off option 5 to disable the cell communicator, since DSC doesn't make a 3G or 4G replacement for this model.

Thank you! But i'm as dumb as a boot when it comes to this kind of stuff lol
Do I need a special code to access those functions? and Do i just punch it all in? Sorry to ask so many questions but i'm not too sharp with these kind of devices lol

You need the installer code. If this was installed/configured by ADT, it is most likely the typical ADT installer code (which we can't post on this forum, or ADT fusses): https://www.google.com/search?q=adt+...oe=&gws_rd=ssl

The command is *8 [installer code]
382
press 5 to turn OFF option 5
press # until you exit programming.

That _should_ do the trick. You _might_ have to disconnect the communicator module from it's connection point.

Will that clear the orange trouble light that's on the panel as well or just shut the alarm up?

That _should_ get rid of the trouble light, assuming that the failed 2G communicator is the only problem. Normally, pressing the # key will silence the trouble warning for 24 hours.
