"outside sensor error" is indicative of a Diagnostic error display, a feature where the device checks the functionality of each attached component. It would seem that your system has the optional "Outdoor Temperature Sensor" (probably P/N TSTATXXSEN01-B). The error then indicates that either that sensor is faulty or the hook up cable is unplug or defective. If you do not observed any critical changes in the comfort inside your home or the area that your system monitors/controls, then this only confirms that it is external and a sensor problem and does not affect the A/C and/or the variable speed furnace/comfort zone system. Normal faults could be the external sensor to cable connector/terminals being exposed to the elements and would require hard cleaning.
This sensor is not critical to the operation of the system and is optional.
Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

does the furnace ignite?? your system may not have been lighting and has gone into ignition lockout count the codes of the led lights then remove panel led diagnostic codes are listed there.
if led codes indicate no problem verify capacitor is good and that mtr is getting 115 volts.

Is this an electric or gass furnace - Eather of these can can have this problem its most recomendable that you call a seviceman .
in the case of electric furnace you may requier a new heat sequencer. And in the case of gass you may requier a new relay.

Your description leads me to believe you have 2 thermostats. How long have you lived in the house? Did it work for you lately? Sometimes its just the door switch. If you have to remove it to change the filter or had it off for another reason hold the switch in by hand and try it. then check the door for correct channeling in the grooves provided and see if this is it.

I had the same problem. I fixed it by turning off the battery switch to disconnect the battery from the power panel. I then had to turn off the main 110 breakers to shut down the converter. Once all the power was turned off the LED light went off. When I turned the power back on the remote was working fine. Hope this works for you.
