I have installed a veritas excel alarm 2 keypads, 4 door sensors and 4 PIR detectors, and a odyssey bell box everything is working fine but when i moved a couple of PIRS, i powered down the system and removed the battery back up.

I thought at that point the bell box should sound until either the battery is put back or the electric is switched back on but it didnt it didnt sound at all. If i set the alarm off by walking through a zone the bell box sounds no problem and the lcd's flash on the bell box fine as well.

Is there a problem with the back up battery in the bell box or have i wired something wrong.

Depending on the version of Odyssey you have either not fitted the wire link or jumper to enable the hold off battery.

Open the sounder, then the internal cover,
Locate the red wire ( short length) and insert into the battery terminal.
