I assume you have 2 black wires coming off your valve. One of the wires coming to the valve will be a common wire (your white), and the other would be the hot wire from the controller. If the white wire is the only wire disconnected, then you can re-connect this to your valve and everything should be fine. Just make sure you use a waterproof connector so your connection doesn't corrode.

The only way the wire going to the solenoid should have been hot, was if the controller was set to turn that valve on when you were re-connecting these wires.

Valve Wiring Question-Help

I was cleaning some groundcover from around the stations. When the sprinklers came on the next morning Zone 4 did not come on. As I expected, I must have disconnected wiring when cleaning out the groundcover. I inspected the wiring behing the stations and on one of the stations a white wire is disconnected from one of the black wires on the valve and the little cap that protects two wires in missing. I touched the white wire to the black wire and the valve sounded like it was starting to run. That kinda scared me so the left them apart. Should I turn the system off and connect these 2 wires? [?]
