Home Security System Repair Questions? Ask a Technician.
Hello, This means that you have a low battery condition on sensor 05 and 02 open the wireless sensor box at the door or window or motion if you have a motion detector and pull out the batteries. Purchase a new batteries at your local hardware store or order some from ebay. I would go ahead and replace all sensor batteries while you are at it.
LOW BAT: Low battery condition in a wireless sensor (if zone number is XXXXX) or low systembattery (if no zone number is XXXXX). If 00 is displayed, a wireless keypad (5827) has alow battery condition.

Thank you and be sure to click the accept button. That is how we get paid for our time.
No that's not what is happening we already replaced the battery because it was saying low battery and are still receiving FC, 02, 05, and all types of codes and beeping alarms.
zone numbers 02 05 and FC Fault keep coming up inadverently
An FC is a "fail to comunicate" which means your system is not being monitored or your phone line has been disrupted. If you have a keyfob, replace the battery in that too! The low battery with the sensor # XXXXX a low battery condition at that sensor. If you had a "00" that would indicate a low battery in the main control.
You may have some bad batteries or old ones that you replaced them with. Try entering your code # XXXXX off button.
Recheck the batteries that you replaced to make sure that the negative and positive are in the right direction.
We are not being monitored at this time (new owners) Is the keyfob the hand held remote (like keyless remote for a car)? 00 has not come up. What is the 02, 05 codes that comes up. The battery works when we enter our code and off button just fine. We tested it and the alarm went off also.
Like right now 02 and fault have come up with loud beeping sound. So I put in(NNN) NNN-NNNN*99 and it stops temporarily
What or where are sensor batteries located on the doors and windows or that large motion box on the wall?
What you just did is put the panel in the main program mode. That has nothing to do with your trouble. You may have accidentally changed some of the main programming fields. 4112 in the default installers code and the 8 + 0 + 0 is how you get into main programming. Do you have any other user code to try?
I have this little card with system functions references on it
The batteries are located in the wireless sensors located at each door or window and at the motion detector itself. If do not have wireless sensors the you would see any little box by the doors or windows and in that case the 02 and 05 simply mean the door is not secured. But most if not all LYNX systems use wireless sensors.
Yes we do have those boxes on each door. So they have individual batteries in them? Where or how do I remove batteries from these boxes to replace them. They have a arrow pointing down with a little piece or flap coming from it.
Geberally if you have 4 consecutive codes in a row like 31, 32, 33, 34 this would indicate a low battery in a keyfob (yes, like a car remote).
There is a little nub or tab that you have to push in and then pull the cover off.
okay so we got one cover off and the alarm is going crazy now. there are these little batteries 3 volt lithiums or something.
Yes, once you pull the cover off it triggers a sensor tamper condition. Replace with new battery and put the cove back on. You will to do this to each sensor. You can stop the beeping by entering your code and off button. Do not use the 8 +0 +0 part. just a valid four digit code.
So now I have to find these batteries to replace in each box. You think that is the problem. I sure hope so. These alarms are driving us nuts.
Yes, but the other thing is now that the alarm is not monitored you will still get the FC trouble which is fail to communicate. So the central station receiver and account # XXXXX have to be removed from the programming.
Remove the central station receiver and account # XXXXX How do we do that?
http://www.elitemonitoring.com/docs/pdf/panels/lynxr/LYNXR-OwnersManual.pdf go here to get your manual and program sheet first. once you have it printed out the come back to me.
I have to leave for a couple of hours. You can request to get back to me and can continue. If I have been a help to you please do not forget the accept button.
okay I have it
