You are using a wireless system that transmits signals between the outdoor sensor and the indoor receiver. They are not a perfect match. You cannot make adjustments, thus if your lucky, the factory matched up the devices prior to the sale. You may contact Lacrosse for a replacement outdoor temperature device.
The instructions for your station call for a specific set up procedure. Batteries should be installed in the transmitter first with time allowed for it to initialize and begin sending data. After installing batteries in the receiver, you should see wind speed and temperature displayed. BUT, here in the real world I have a Lacrosse receiver currently displaying a balmy 67 degrees inside and a not-so-balmy - - outside. I believe the alkaline batteries used in the transmitter lose efficiency or freeze at low temperatures. Warmer weather restores the outside temperature display.
Sometimes, you have to remove all the batteries in the transmitter and receiver and wait a few minutes before the next step.
Then you replace transmitter batteries first and within 30 seconds, get the batteries installed in the receiver. This allows the receiver to link up with your transmitter. Both units need to be reset this way. You'll see the temperature and any other information the transmitter provides come up in a few minutes. This works with my La Crosse weather station. Using the reset buttons without removing power will not work. My nieghbour has a weather station from another manufacturer and this is also the only way that his will link up.
These devices are very particular about how they are set up. You are supposed to insert batteries in the transmitter first then wait awhile until it gets in the mood to start transmitting. Next, insert batteries in the clock and wait for the two units to begin "talking to each other".
The instructions are specific regarding the order of battery replacement. First, the outside followed by a pause to allow the ouside unit to begin communicating. Next, the inside unit with a pause until results are displayed.
Seems to be a consistent problem with Skyscan. I have the 88800 model and my outdoor transmitter isn't transmitting the temperature either. We've replaced the batteries in both the transmitter and clock and nothing for outdoor temp. It's only been used for 9 months.
