    accenta6 alarm

    I'd check the tamper switch on the internal sounder. If you remove the lid of the sounder there will be a small silver spring which is depressed by the lid or a microswitch which is also depressed by the lid. It could also be the keypad or main panel tamper switch so id check those too Good luck
