Aube/Honeywell timers have internal rechargeable battery that powers the display.
Battery is not replaceable. Plus the electronics inside timers are susceptible to power surge.
Without the display, timer cannot be used.
These timers come with standard 1 year limited warranty.

The programmable timer/switch has stopped working. LCD shows nothing. Pressing the door no longer turns light on and off. Flipped breaker and no help. Seems like I need to buy another one after only six...

You posted under Aube timer.

Aube timers have internal rechargeable battery that cannot be exposed to cold temperatures nor can battery be replaced when it goes bad.
Try resetting timer to see if function resumes.
Industry standard is 1 year limited warranty, so your product is under warranty.

The Aube T1032 is ordinary 7-day programmable, without astronomical capability, but it can be wired for single-pole or 3-way.
If you want same type of timer without battery, for single-pole only, Home Depot carries 15071
Advantage: no battery, and this timer can be exchanged in-store without shipping costs.

Lowes carries Utilitec 0141244, for 7-day single-pole, without battery:
Lowes also carries 7-day & astronomic 0192773, single pole, no battery

Have an aube digital timer (7-day, model TI032) running outside lights. Just installed yesterday, when it comes on (either manually or on auto) I can hear a loud, audible clicking at a pretty fast rate...

Please review the technical manual for your Aube timer and check your wiring. I'm sure it is a oversight in the wiring.

I hope this helps you solve your problem...Please leave a comment...Thanks! Jim

Is it possible to connect a digital timer(4 wires) to lite fixture with two switches? The switch I am trying to connect to is three pole and a ground

If I understand correctly, your switch has 3 poles, which makes it a 3-way switch.
You confirm this by saying light fixture has two switches.

There are two brands of in-wall timers that will work in 3-way situation. Intermatic and Aube. But only specific models of these timers work for 3-way.

The Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C battery-operated timers can work with 3-way switch. But wiring is tricky to impossible in some cases without extra wiring.

The easiest timer to wire for 3-way switch is Aube model T1032 which is a 500 watt timer.
T1032 manual:
Look at the wiring diagrams carefully.
Note that you are replacing one switch with the timer.
The second switch needs additional jumper wire added to circuit between dark-colored screw and the brass-colored screw that connects back to #1 wire from the timer.

Add a comment if you have this timer, or buy this timer, and need help with wiring.

When I hook up a new timer it starts to make a clicking noise and the lights do not go on. I have put in 2 different batteries and the timer still makes a clicking noise. The light timer is for a 3-way...

Your wiring is probably wrong.
Wiring is tricky for 3-way timers.
First of all, both 3-way switches cannot be replaced with timers ... just one of the two switches is replaced.

You don't say which timer you have.
Since I know the wiring and the timers, let me jump in, and you can add a comment, and then we can work further.

A) You have battery-operated ST01C or EJ500.
Here is wiring diagram for Intermatic battery-operated timers:
Note that at all times, the blue wire has to go to load, and that the blue wire connects to dark-colored screw on 3-way switch.
Note that the remaining 3-way switch is not wired the same as before. The red and blue wires have to be wired exactly as shown, and the wiring might require additional wire running between the switches.
Now add a comment with your wire colors and description where you are in the wiring.

B) You have Aube timer with rechargeable battery.
T0132 manual shows wiring diagrams
Below is image of typical Aube wiring.
The manual shows one other diagram depending on which switch is being replaced.
The important this is note that the wiring on the remaining 3-way switch requires a jumper wire from the dark-colored screw to the brass screw on other side of switch. But it has to be the same brass screw that goes back to Aube timer #1 wire.
Usually this little difference solves the 3-way switching problem, but add a comment any time.

Lost power and need to reset the timer.

Aube timers have back up battery that recharges after power resumes.
Battery should hold programming during outage.
If battery does not charge, then screen doesn't light up and programming not possible.

Aube makes several timers.

If you have different timer, add a comment

Will your timer work inside a cold garage though the winter?

Fixya doesn't make timers.
Honeywell makes the Aube Timer
Aube timers are a new product with a rechargeable battery.
Batteries are susceptible to cold temperatures just as you suspect

Aube/Honeywell has a 'contact us' page
I sent an e-mail to Aube tech support about your question.
As soon as they answer, I will post their answer on this thread.

I also posted a page on Aube timers with links and manuals:

Yes i have an intermatic timer for my outside lights mounted on my wall inside. it seemed to have stopped working. nothing is on display and i changed the battery

If you have a battery-operated Intermatic timer, then it is the ST01C or EJ500.
The advantage of the battery is simple wiring when you replace a light switch.

Both of these timers have troubleshooting in their manuals.
Both timers come with a 1 year warranty.

I have tested the wiring, operation and programming of the Intermatic timers and many other in-wall timers.
If the display does not light up on ST01C or EJ500, then the battery is the only reason.
If the battery is not working, then the timer is broken.
You might try cleaning the battery terminals and connectors located inside the pull-out tray.


These small electrical devices do not have repair parts.
When the timer goes bad, you buy a replacement timer.

You can buy another Intermatic battery-operated timer and keep the simple wiring:

You can also buy Aube T-1034 rechargeable-battery-operated timer.
The T-1034 is strictly sunrise-sunset.
The T-1070 is sunrise-sunset -and/or- multi-day programs

The page below explains the Aube

The links below sell the Aube

T-1034 and T-1070 wiring is slightly different than Intermatic, and you can add a comment and I will help you with any wiring question.

Lost the instructions T1032-33-34-35 can we get them?

Aube is a Honeywell product I believe:
The timer seems revolutionary for not requiring a Neutral wire, yet requires no battery either.
Advantage: No more confusing wiring. Simple 7-step programming.
If old switch has 2 wires, the Aube changes to 2-wire application
If old switch is 3-way, the Aube changes to 3-wire application, the only major change is jumper on other 3-way switch

Timer replaces ordinary wall switch:

Timer replaces 3-way switch
