Just keep following. It is the one sure way to find the valves. A pro would use a cable locater, that he paid hundreds of dollars for.

You will have to locate the valves. Follow the wire from the controller. Poke around the ground with a big screwdriver, looking for a valve box cover.

Solenoids are on the valves. They can burn out and become an open circuit. Sloppy wiring can become an open circuit. Disconnect the solenoid wires and test it for resistance. Label your wires before you disconnect anything.

Got an test meter to troubleshoot with? I assume you do, if 'no continuity' is accurate. You need to break the problem down to its component parts, and check each one. Maybe it's a dead solenoid. Or a broken wire. Or a bad connection.
