KIB Control Panels Misbehaving

ALL KIB control panels from the kitchen forward "light up" whenever I touch ANY one of those panels.

Until a couple of days ago, the only panel that would "light up" was the panel being touched. All KIB panels aft of the kitchen still behave that way.

Is this possibly some kind of setting that may have been inadvertently altered? If not, any other ideas? (FWIW, all functions on all panels seem to work correctly.)

Thanks!

First thing is to do a hard reset ..... salesman switch - turn off all DC to the coach.

Only thing that helped me reset the confused panels.

Here is a brief overview of the KIB system - circa 2013 - most of it probably still applies.

I agree to cycle the battery disconnect at the front. All of the those panels go back to the closet, you will see the black box in the cut out. Open that up and unplug and plug back in the large plugs and see if that resets it. If not, you have to pull each panel and figure out which one has bad logic.

Thanks to all!

Sounds like cycling DC power will be the easiest and quickest thing to try (which I will do in the morning). I will report back.

I had one of the buttons on the entry side get a white light instead of the usual blue-green. Everything worked OK. Then in a few months it corrected itself. When I pulled the KIB plate for that station out there were 3 small lights on each button. I did not mess with them and just put it back in the wall.
