Solenoid

Yes, the cables are color coded. I specifically connected one wire connection at a time to try not to mix up the wires. You suggested getting a multimeter. I guess If I had tested the solenoid with the multimeter, I would have known that the wires where mixed. If the solenoid does not open, does the timer controller skip to the next hot solenoid to complete all 6 zones? Thank you very much for all your advice.

Solenoid

Ok, so I hand tightened the solenoid I replaced firm, and checked the other five as well. I turned on the irrigation for the 3 minute test run and zone 1, 2 ran fine, but it skipped zones 3, 4, and started up on 5, then started up 5 again for zone 6. The solenoid I replaced was for zone 4. Is it possible that I crossed up a wire and would that cause these issues?

How do you determine how far to screw in a Solenoid into the valve?
