Napco Magnum Alert Alarm System RP1054D is randomly beeping

Needing help on 20 year old Napco Magnum Alert Alarm system model RP1054D. One of two keypads is beeping randomly approx. 4+/- hours after system is armed at night. Have to reset "press 9" to get it to stop and then disarm. Already replaced battery and took all of the connected fire alarms down in an attempt to rule out possible trouble. No indicators lights/numbers are blinking on the keypad when this happens. Any ideas on further troubleshooting? When disarmed and status light is green, no beeping occurs.

Are you able to disarm with the other keypad without pressing 9? If only one keypad is doing this, then chances are that the keypad is going bad and will have to be replaced.

When the beeping starts, we can disarm the system from either keypad. We have to press 9 to get the beeping to stop and reset the system.

RP1054D is the keypad used on the 1000 series panels (1000 thru 1016). If the system is armed about the same time every night, I suspect a programmed Test Signal is not getting through. This is indicated by keypad beeping with the Red, Green and Yellow LEDS blinking together and the number 3 displayed. Test signals are sent at the same time, usually when Central Station receiver traffic is low (AKA: middle of the night).

You can test phone lines by holding the 6 button until the keypad starts beeping. If the phone lines are good, the keypad will stop beeping. If not, use 9 to silence.

Is the keypad "Beeping" in a rhythmic pattern or "Chirping" randomly?
If chirping, it's due to a bad button on the keypad. If beeping and none of the other keypads are beeping .... it's something else going bad in the keypad.

You can try exchanging the bad keypad with another and see if the problem moves with the keypad (which I think it will) T

The beeping/chirping is the same sound as when a door or window is opened. Not sure if that is considered a beep or chirp. It is now beeping armed or disarmed with no indicator lights or flashing zones. Just the green status light when disarmed and the red light when armed. It happened last night at 2:08 am (system unarmed), beeped about every 20 seconds and then started a steady beep until I reset (pressed 9). It was quiet the rest of the night. It just started the random beeping again (disarmed) now in the middle of the day. Pressed 9 and now it is quiet. The system is not currently monitored.

Exchange the bad keypad with one of the other keypads to see if the problem moves.

If it does, then it's an indication that the problem is a keypad problem and not a system problem.

And by the way, it would be helpful if you told us what the model number of your control panel is.

The model number is1008LK/1008LKDL. We discovered by pressing "5" we were able to stop the chime. This has resolved the issue of the random beeping for the time being until we can determine what is really causing the issue.

So .... at this point we can presume that it was the Chime feature that was making the keypad beep. However, now you have to find out which zone on the system has an intermittent contact.
You can turn the chime feature back on and put wire jumpers across the zone terminals of each zone. Then, one by one over a period of days, remove the jumpers one by one until you again hear the beeping return to the keypad. Once determining which zone it is, you will have to check all the contacts in that zone to determine which one is the problem.
Note: If you have end of line resistors at the end of each zone, you will have to bypass the zone terminals with 2.2k ohm resistors.

You're tacking onto the end of a two year old thread.

Do you know your _system_ model number? The trouble table is not the same from one Napco model to another.
