Alarm beeps every minute

Hey everyone,

My house is setup with an old C&K security system 236 I just recently have had my smoke detectors go off. They are hard wired into the house so I had to remove them to stop the detector alarm, I will replace them when I buy new ones.

I also looked at the backup battery for my security system and decided to replace it. It is about 5 years old. I disconnected the battery and ever since then a constant beep occurs every 1 minute. I purchased the new battery and installed it yet the beeping is still happening.

The system is not monitored so it is just a home alarm.

Thanks for all you help

Looking at the user manual for one of these old beasts, that doesn't seem to be an alarm system function:

I strongly suspect that the beep you are hearing is coming from one of the smoke alarms (which are not connected to the security system, by your description).
