I suspect you have an open neutral due to a poor connection somewhere. The 165 volts are stray induced voltages due to your high-impedence meter and just indicating a disconnected wire. A connected neutral should show near 0 to ground and ~230 to hot. Work backward for every place there might be a connection until you find a change. You can start at either the panel (where things should be good) and move forward, or start near where you have your failure and work backward.
