Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do what I can to provide the right answer to your question.
How are the keypads connected? check each connection.
Are the keypads from the old (15 yrs. old) unit? or do they belong with the new one?
If they did not come with the new one period, then they may well not be compatible at all... or they may have blown out the interface circuitry in the new one (I hope not.)
