If you lose the 18M key or damage the key switch, the 18M can be hot-wired into the ARM position with a few simple steps.
- Remove the four screws from the back of the module.
- Remove the back enclosure and find the two wires that connect the main PC board to the key switch.
- Cut these wires using a knife or wire cutter and strip approximately 1” off the cut end.
- Connect the bare wires, the thin black wire to the thin red wire, and the thick red wire to the thick black wire. Make sure you use a piece of tape to cover any exposed wire. A wire that is exposed might come in contact with the PC board and cause a system malfunction.
