00611A3 not detecting new replacement sensor?

I have had a model 00611A3 for over a year. The outdoor temp/humidity stopped displaying.  I changed batteries in the sensor, and did get readings at some point.  then it stopped.  The inside of the sensor is corroded, so I bought a replacement sensor.  The new replacement outdoor sensor is not connecting with the display unit.  The sensor has ABC codes, the display unit does not.  What setting should I use on the outdoor sensor?  Does it matter?  Thoughts?

Hello Kat,

It sounds like you purchased the incorrect sensor. You would need a 609TXC sensor, and you purchased a 06002RM sensor which has the A-B-C switch. We have attached the link to the correct sensor.
