Usually when a specific zone shorts out the timer it's the solenoid on the valve. Either that or the ground and the hot wire are touching somewhere along the line on that numbered zone. Try this. Disconnect one of the wires at the valve which is shorting out the timer. Then turn on the timer. If it doesn't short out then you know it's the solenoid. If it does then the short is somewhere along the wiring. Good luck!

I have no clue what I'm doing

A couple weekends ago we had a huge power outage and my old sprinkler timer stopped working. I went a bought a new timer and now I can only get 2 out of the 3 zones to work. I'm not to sure why I can't get the other zone to run, but every time I try the pump starts for about 2 seconds and then clicks the whole system off. Please help!!!!!
