    Default Bosch ICP-CC488 "OFF" Flashing

    Hi

    I have a Bosch ICP-CC488 alarm and the "OFF" symbol is flashing and the zone "8" symbol is on. The alarm appears to work OK but I am not sure why the OFF is flashing. The manual says it is because a zone was unsealed while the alarm was not set and the solid 8 symbol indicates that this zone is unsealed. Problem is here is no zone 8 only zones 1-5 have detectors in them so I cannot see how it can be unsealed. Any ideas what the issue could be resolved?

    Hi

    Off is flashing because system is off. You said you don't have a zone 8 it's a good chance it's tamper
    Alarm for outside siren box has tamper switch or the main panel has a tamper switch on it located left
    Hand side when you open the box.....

    Default Bosch ICP-CC488 "OFF" Flashing

    Bosch ICP-CC488 has been powered down for some time because the previous owner couldn't remember any alarm codes.
    Have now reset to default and installed a new battery. Everything seems to be working correctly, except that "OFF" is flashing.
    I couldn't find a tamper switch on the outside siren box or the main alarm panel.
    As far as I know, there is only 3 zones and the display shows numbers 4 through to 8.
    There could be something connected to zone 8 as the system wouldn't allow it to be isolated (no problems isolating the other zones).
    Any suggestions for stopping the "OFF" flashing?

    Unused zones need to be disabled or sealed with a resistor. Zone 8 won't have bypassing option enabled by default.
    If it's been defaulted, then it needs to be programmed using alarm manual.

    Thank you. That worked. I disabled Zones 4-8 and "OFF" no longer flashes.
