Station won't come on

I have 6 active stations on a rainbird clock all of a sudden station #2 stopped working. If I switch it to manual and set the number of minutes I'd like to water instead of starting the word off just flashes. This station isn't coming on ion the automatic mode either. Any idea what this problem is? ?(

There's a short in the system. Find valve number 2. Disconnect one of the solenoid wires. Go back to the controller and see if it still shorts out. If not replace the solenoid. If so look for crossed wires somewhere between the controller and the valve.
