FC is also used for the Fire Alarm part of the circuit. FC can show on new panels, because it it not programmed yet. For Vist 20p systems, Zone 1 is pre-programmed as a fire zone. To get around it, and use your keypad to get into the progamming mode, you would install a resistor on zone 1, program, and then you can move to that zone.

If keypad displays the FC code Can you still program a new master code?


I have never tried that because it has never been requested. "FC" is a higher priority. It means failure to communicate. So I would always correct that problem first and then change the master code. But I don't see why you would not be able to change the master code due to FC code. Gl.

How do I program zonig for my Ademco 6148 pad


The 6148 keypad is a fixed english keypad. It is possible to program your system from a fixed english keypad, but it is very difficult. an alpha keypad shows text descriptions of the programming fields. The model number is 6160. If you are doing your own programming, I would suggest replacing the 6148.

When programming, you're programming your alarm panel, not the keypad. The keypad is just an interface to the panel. If you have a tan box in your basement or a closet, that is your panel. There will be a sticker on the inside of the door of the panel that will tell you the model of the panel at the bottom. It will say Ademco Vista 10, 15, 15P, 20, or 20P.

From there you can go to the link below and find the installation and programming manual for your panel.
