Sprinklers go on and off

I have an orbit 6 station controller. Using only 5 stations. Turned system on for summer and the sprinklers come on then go off(run about 30 seconds). All 5 stations do this even on manual. Checked the continuity on all wires good. Have 24v going into controller. What else can I check. Controller does not show that it is having a problem. It is 10 years old

Check the wiring for resistance. If it tests okay, you can bypass the controller and power a zone directly from the transformer.
