Customer Question

Hi Neil, I am trying to find a way to default the master and engineer codes for a Galaxy G2-20 panel - I believe there is a way to do this without changing the panel programming but am having difficulty in finding out anything. Honeywell say only the G3 can be done but I am not convinced. Any ideas?
Thanks. Paul

Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question. There is a procedure that should work on the G2, but if you do this it is of course at your own risk.

remove mains
remove battery

put a link between 0v and tamper on the siren out pins on the pcb

remove connections to zone 1 (1001)

defeat panel tamper switch, put the end station panel screw in place
then power the panel up bay battery first then mains

enter default code 1234 (or12345)
this should silence the system
then ESC
then enter default engineers code 1122 or 112233 depends on software version
then ENT
enter engineer code again that should default back to factory
