Outdoor temp

My outdoor temp is stuck on my pretty new center.  I purchased the recommended batteries, replaced them in both units and generally followed all of the other suggestions I could find here.  Everything else reset except the temp.  I attempted to recalibrate from the -40 listed and it would only go down to -31 (currently it is 90 here.)   Any suggestions?

Is this a 5n1? Take it apart the way acurite recommends, and check the wiring connections. The thermometer plugs in and may have pulled out. The thermometer sensor is just above the air vent on the bottom.

Check all the wiring inside to be sure nothing has pulled away from it's contacts. If it is anything beyond just pushing the connection back in, you will want to stop If this unit is still in warranty, and make a claim.
