The "Aux HT" indicator went on, however the room temp will not go up.
I change the mode to "EHEAT", the fan on the outside unit stopped, "Aux HT" indicator is still on, however the room temp still not goes up. The air comes out of the vent is warm but not hot...

I assume that you have a heat pump system. If this is the case, the outside temperature is probably lower than the heat pump is sized for and it is using the auxiliary heating system to keep up. The auxiliary heating system usually is an electric coil in the heat pump unit which supplements the heat being produced by the heat pump. This is normal operations and does not indicate a problem with the heat pump, it is just really cold outside. If it is not colder than usual outside, there may be a problem with the heat pump and you should call a heating contractor to check it out.
When resetting anything electronic, leave switched off for about 15 mins. The electronic boards store the memory of any failure or problem and switching off for only a few seconds or minutes will not reset the board. Turn off at the mains supply not the wall control.
See if it happens only when your temperature of the room is more than 3 degrees of your setpoint temperature. Since you have a heat pump, the auxiliary (electric heat strips) is use for backup of the heat pump when it can't keep up. The heat pump will run by itself if it can maintain temperature within a couple degrees. If it is too cold outside to handle the load or you set the temperature more than 2 degrees past room temperature, the auxiliary will turn on. The thermostat has a memory of how long it takes to reach desired temperature. If it goes into auxiliary mode trying to satisfy setpoint during the last call for heat, it will start the next call for heat in both aux & heat pump mode until the thermostats algorithm (timed program) allows only the heat pump to run. Not sure if you have an air to air, or geothermal heat pump. The outside air temperature will affect only the air to air system ie. when the temps drop outside, the heat coming out of your vents will be cooler...the air to air systems drops efficiency when the outdoor air drops.
Sounds like it could be a effiency function to warn you that the heat elements are on. Check your thermostat manual and see if you can turn this feature off. If this is not a feature then the thermostat may be wired wrong or something in the circuit may be trying to short out.
The aux switch is for electric heat banks installed in the air handler. Depending on the outside temp. it may not be efficient to run in heat pump mode but in aux. or emergency would run the electric heat in the air handler.
you need to go oside and look for a red reset button on the unit. you tripped the high ressure switch when you let your filter get that dirty. go check on this and when your done if it still is not working then ask me more.
