meter adjustment

Hey all got a question for ya.. I use this Meter for all of my automotive needs..Ive noticed recently the temperature is WAY off earlier today I was using it and just didn't make sense (see my post in engine section titled "problem?") It was 48ish out today and my meter was saying it was -3 it was on Fahrenheit not Celsius anyone know of a way to calibrate this meter ..or is it the thermocouple going bad?

Doc here,

Check or replace the Battery...It may be almost dead.

Doc here,

Yeah, try another..those go dead just sitting.

I'd say check it with your DVOM...but ... well you know...

I , myself am an optimist..The Definition of A Flash light is a tubular holder in which to store dead battery's..
