2nd owner - no code for DSC 1832

The previous owner gave me what they "thought" was their code for the security system. But, it wasn't correct so I cannot use the system. I disconnected the power in hopes that it would reset but that didn't work.

I would certainly appreciate any advice on how to override the system and reset the code.

As you may have figured out, simply powering the system down doesn't clear or default the system. It won't even disarm it.

You can check and see if the default installer code is still in place by keying in *8 5555. If it beeps rapidly and goes into programming mode; then press the # key several times to exit programming, then we can help you extract/change your master user code.

If it doesn't do so, then short of a lucky guess at either the master or installer code, your only practical choice would be to do a hardware default, and have to program the system over, from scratch.

Read over the installer manual, and let us know what parts you have trouble following: http://cms.dsc.com/download.php?t=1&id=17007
