I received a 5 in 1 Pro Weather Station for Christmas. Everything seems to work great except for indoor temp reads 158°.

Did you try uplugging the display and taking batteries out. This will reset the unit. Had the same problem with my indoor Humidity being way off. Now it is fine.

Yes I did, multiple times. I tried a hard reset multiple times also. The temp comes on at 70° for a few seconds (giving me false hope) then reverts back to 158°.
Thanks.

Hello Beth,

What is the model number of your weather station? Please try the factory reset steps below:

To do a factory reset: (THIS WILL CLEAR ALL OF YOUR HISTORY AND YOUR SETTINGS)

Please verify that you are using a name brand (Rayovac or Energizer) standardalkaline batteries in the display unit. We do not recommend using anything thatis heavy duty, rechargeable, store brand or Lithium inside of the display.

- Remove all power, AC adapter and batteries, from the display unit.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button, located in the batterycompartment, for 20 seconds.
- Plug back into AC power and insert recommended batteries.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button for an additional 20seconds.
- Verify that the unit has powered on and once connection has been made,attempt to set time and date.

The model number is 01512A1. I have tried with and without Duracell alkaline batteries. I have done the suggestion multiple times with and without the sensor next to it. It does not make a difference. The inside temp stays at 158°.
