Modern timer batteries are built into the circuit board and not replaceable ... sounds like a different problem since battery is back up carryover for power outage.
Push override and see if load operates.

SOURCE: Can the Utilitech Mode #

I believe it is a single pole only, and also requires a neutral to operate.I'm assuming it has black(line) red(load) white(neutral) green(ground) If you need a three-way or only have a switch leg in your box (no white wires) then I'd recommend one of intematic models that can be connected either as a single pole or 3way and requires no neutral.

SOURCE: RE: Utilitech 7-day in wall

1) Utilitec timers cannot be used for multiple switch replacement.
They replace only single-pole switch.

2) Open following link to see specific timers that can be used for 3-way.

3) In your case you have 3 different switches that control outside lights: so you have two 3-way switches and one 4-way switch.
Open following link to see typical 4-way wiring.

4) 3-way timer will replace one of the 3-way, but not the 4-way.
The timer can be used in place of the 4-way switch.
Identify 4-way because it has 4 screws and 4 wires (excluding ground wire)

5) Keep in mind that 3-way timers replace one of the 3-way switches.
But wiring has to be changed at the remaining 3-way switch.
Open following link to read why wiring is changed at remaining 3-way:
Wiring at the 4-way switch is left the same.
When you buy the timer, read manual carefully for correct wiring, or add a comment to this thread, and I will help more.

SOURCE: I have installed a Utilitech

You are replacing single-pole switch, then 0141224 is correct choice.
It sounds like your have wiring wrong.
No jumper is needed from other switch, all you need are two wires from replaced switch plus a neutral wire.
Open following link for detailed wiring instructions and online manual.

Add a comment and ask about particular part of manual or wiring if needed.

Utilitech wall timer

Utilitec timers do not have replaceable batteries.
Older timer designs have batteries, while more modern timers have internal rechargeable battery that is integral with circuit board, and cannot be replaced. The battery holds memories in event of power outage, but current time must be reset if power is out for extended time.
If you have continual problems with failed timers, then have electrician friend run test on your power for spikes, shortages and surge that will cause timers and other non-hardened electronics to fail frequently. Also check for polarity and grounding issues. Also if you have motors, other electronics and/or fluorescent lights on same circuit, this can cause interference.
Also check load limitations, and load on timer to make sure you are not exceeding the timer rating. For example using timer to control motor when timer is rated for non-inductive incandescent loads.
Reset timer using reset button, and then re-program. Buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package for refund.
Buy Intermatic ST01C timer. This timer uses CR2 battery, and timer electronics operate separately from electric line. Rated for any load: motors, cfl bulbs, led, incandescent, etc.

My light dont come on when im pushing the trigger

The internal control unit will not let the bulb operate if the battery is not up to voltage. To recharge the battery, you will need a 12VDC 300mA adapter. It will take 12 to 15 Hours to charge. If that doesn't work, replace the battery

I'm trying to program a utilitech timer with no instruction book

Try following page:
Page has links to Utilitec manuals and programming steps.

Also add a comment and say exactly which buttons are on the timer, or what timer looks like, and I can probably identify timer and provide instructions.
