Whether or not its retaining in memory in one thing, and there might not be a master password ***** this point. Knowing this, have you looked for a reset button on the unit itself?

there is a reset button but even resetting it comes back on locked

Expected as stated in your reply, there we find the question posed for your documentation with the papers for any further configuration to make it this far; if it isn't a generic 0000 code then without considering defect either your old password ***** be retained as of late and if not a reset would resolve the ordeal.
