How do I change the battery in my Vantage Pro2?
The wireless Vantage Pro2 weather station’s sensor suite operates using solar power with a battery back-up that automatically kicks on when needed. The console uses AC power with three C-Cells for backup in case power is lost.
The wireless Vantage Pro2 sensor suite uses a 3-volt CR123 lithium backup battery. It should last several years depending on solar charging. If you receive a “Low battery on station X” message on the console, it is time to change the 3-volt Lithium battery. The battery compartment is located inside the transmitter shelter. To replace the battery, open the transmitter cover and replace the battery. (The battery error might not disappear immediately. It should reset at midnight.)
Your wireless console batteries should last up to 9 months without AC-power.
The cabled Vantage Pro2 sensor suite is AC-powered through the console. The cabled system console batteries should last about a month without AC power.
A message that reads, “Low Battery Console” indicates that the batteries should be replaced. To replace them, with AC power connected, open the battery compartment on the back of the console.
How do I reset my Vantage Pro2?
The Vantage Pro2 weather station console does not have a reset button. To reset the unit unplug it from the AC power source and remove the batteries. Wait 10-20 seconds, and then power the unit on again.
