    Hi,
    I have a gardtech (I believe to be CPX) alarm system. I wanted to reprogram some of the zones, so I followed the reset engineering code and master code steps. (power cycle 1, 9, yes, no) and this seemed to reset both the engineer master code.

    However, now when I type "1 2 3 4", I get "Set Engineer?" on the panel, but pressing no doesn't do anything and allow me to enter engineer mode - the panel continues to display the above message. Pressing yes will arm the Alarm.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Perfect, that did it! Thank you. I couldn't find any reference to this sequence of steps in user guides online.
    Thanks again.
