Hello Sam, and thanks for your question.

There's not very much information from which to work, so I have a couple of questions for you.

1. Are these zone lights that show up in response to the *2 command?

2. What protection is on zones 4, 5, and 6?

3. Was the power still out when you attempted to arm the system, or was the power back on?

Let me know, and I'll do my best to help you out.

Best Regards,
