    After 2 or 3 years of working properly I now cannot get an outdoor temperature to register. I've tried every possible combination of battery in/out reset on/off etc. I've tried brand new batteries and still no connecting signal. It seems like the outdoor transmitter is broken.

    Is this likely and can it be replaced? I probably have to buy a complete new system?

    Thanks for any assistance!

    would be hard, even google searching for a week.
    no model number stated, at all, rear side

I had the same problem and finally found my manual. Here's what to do, everyone!

1. Take back panel off the sending unit, where the three batteries are, by unscrewing the 4 phillips head screws (assuming you, like I, had put the screws back in after installing new batteries). You will see a little gray button in a hole above where the batteries are; the little button is one you can push down with the same phillips screwdriver you took the 4 screws out with - don't do this yet.

2. Now, hold down the "channel" button on front of receiver panel for 2 sec, until the dash in the "ch" box and the place where the temp is supposed to be starts blinking.

3. Now, while these indicia are blinking on the panel, push the little gray button down and hold it for 2 seconds. This causes the transmitter to "register" with the receiver. You should now see a 1 in the "ch" box and get a temp reading.

4. Put screws back on, put receiver where you want it, proceed with rest of your life.

    Re: bsq2bbb's post. Indeed very helpful, but just one more thing. Before 2's 'hold down the "channel" button on front of receiver panel for 2 sec ', first push down the small white 'reset' button above the batteries inside the receiver, then immediately hold down the "channel" button as in 2, then proceed from there onwards as explained in bsq2bbb's post.

If your batteries die, or for some other reason you have to sync your remote with your indoor station, do this:
Once you have new batteries installed -

  1. On the indoor Weather Center press the "Channel" button - you should see the "out" channel display blink
  2. On the remote sensor, press the reset button (it's inside the battery cover on mine) for about two seconds
  3. When you release the reset button, your main Weather Center should beep when it makes the connection
  4. Viola! You've done it!
For setting other things, such as the time, press "mode" until the upper left section blinks. Then adjust up or down by using the + or - buttons on the back. Once you get that section set where you want it, press the "mode" button again to move to the next section.

If you have the Living Solutions atomic projection clock with remote temperature unit (many sold by Costco), your outdoor reading will eventually start showing a dotted line instead of the temp. Yes, you may need to replace the AAA batteries in the remote unit, but if that doesn't work, you also need to replace the AA batteries in the back of the main clock/display unit! Next, press the reset button next to the AA battery compartment, then press the reset button next to the AAA battery compartment on the remote unit, wait for the atomic clock to set the correct time, etc. and you are good to go. Unless your atomic clock doesn't find its satellites (mine never does) in which case you need to set the time manually. Start by holding down the smaller "AL" button on top of the unit until display flashes, use that button to proceed to next item, use top two side buttons to go up or down for time, year, month, date. All of the above just worked for me!

Here is what you can do.
1. inser batteries into both the remote and receiving (main) device. until you saw the digits in both displays.
2. Hold "-" key at the back of receiveing device, then you will slash flash in the "out" textfield. This state shows that receiving device is ready to receive the signal from remote device
3. press the reset button on the back of the remote device,it may take more one time. So you can press 2-3 times until you see the outdoor temperature in the main menu.
That's it. Have fun.

I found that if you take the batterys out of both units, then put the batterys in the outside sending unit first (dont push reset) then put the batterys in the main unit. it worked for me ! good luck!

Posted on Dec 11, 2008

    yes remote first
    so the base can find it at boot and scan.

What help me was to start the reset button on the main unit and then to install the batteries on the the outdoor one while it was scanning. When I just pressed the rest button of the outdoor unit as bsq2bbb wrote it didn't work. Hope it will work for you.

I have some similar devices, not sure about the type/code of the receiving unit (front only says RF-tech 433 MHz), but the back of the sensors says: Ewig Industries co ltd / Model 217S34 / 3VDC.
I have two receivers and two sensors, and the idea is to connect both sensors to each receiver so that I can read all temps at all receivers.
I lost my manual long ago, but here's what works for me when changing the batteries:
- remove all batteries
- insert batteries into receiver units
- after a few seconds, insert batteries into first sensor (-> ch 1)
- after first sensor has connected (beep from receiver(s)), insert batteries into second sensor (-> ch 2)

(identical sensors but slightly different receivers)

    This is pretty much the best way - what I found worked was to leave both units for a few minutes after removing the old batteries to allow everything to reset to default conditions. Then add one battery to tx unit, then both batteries to receiver and quickly add the second battery to the tx. Works every time - don't touch the reset buttons!

If channel button does not work, press and hold "-" button on the back.

    I found how to set the date time and switch between F and C.

    1. Hold the set button for 2 seconds. hit set until what you want to set is blinking.
    2. Use the set button on the back to advance the time, date, or change the C to F.
    a. The degree measurement is hard to notice the C or F will blink and is the last one
    to be set.

BAR888A -Changed batteries house (1st) & outside unit(2nd.) Now inside unit not receiving signal. Only thing registering is inside temp. Outside unit is also showing temp.


Remove all batteries. Install batteries in outside unit and allow time for it to begin sending temperature. Install batteries in inside unit. You should see outside temperature displayed. If not, the outside unit could be defective.

My Buick Rendezvous has the DIC. It works fine but the temperature is always 0 celcius (says 0C). Got 2 new outside air sensors from junkyard and no change. Should i check something else like voltage?


It should be possible to test the sensors with an ohmmeter (I think) as they will likely be temperature sensitive resistors or thermistors.

Testing the voltage was the thing to do in the old days of analogue and direct current systems but I think you will find the electronics on your car is digitally based and difficult or impossible to test with an ordinary meter. An oscilloscope will probably be needed...

My 03 Saturn VUE water temp overheat light never turns off.


Possible that the ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) is faulty, or the wiring to it has been compromised. Try looking the wiring over. If nothing jumps out at you, replace the sensor. Keep in mind, it's the season for critters to seek warmth from engine heat.

Skyscan digital wall clock just quit showing outside temperature


you probably need to 'pair' the outdoor sensor with the main base: look for a 'channel' button, as these units usually can get information from several sensors and differentiate them by a channel number.

My new storm tracker STX7500 weathertech does not display the outside temperature


Take out the batteries in the main station for at least 5 min. Also, check the batteries on your outside station and make sure that they are new and the same brand, not rechargeables. Make sure that the outside station is reading a temperature and humidity first. Make sure that the outside gauge is close enough to your inside station. Having your inside station to near electrical or metal things or the outside station too far from the inside station is the most likely of your problems. To test this, once you've restarted your inside station, bring it close to the outside station and see if it's reading. Also, check the bottom right to see if your inside station has an antenna icon. If so, it's just updating from the radio station that updates your station often. Wait for that antenna to disappear from the bottom screen before trying to figure if your outside station is reading correctly. Finally, make sure that you have the right time zone, state, and city programmed into your inside station. If none of these work, call or e-mail the link in your book. Hope this works.
