Sprinklers won't come on-controller ok

Turned off my sprinklers by the controller :wacko: while they were running. was off for 2 days, tried turning controller to run, and it functions the way it should, but everything else is doing absolutely nothing. I'm not sure if it's the irrigation well or the sprinklers. I hear no clicking by the well as it should. house fusebox ok. the aerator tank by well is completely empty. the controller will run through it's entire zone cycle normally, but the sprinklers do nothing. HELP!!!!

If "clicking by the well" means a pump relay is no longer operating, you want to make sure a rain detector, or other sensor, isn't preventing operation. The usual means of diagnosing electrical issues begins with resistance testing of the wiring to the valves (and pump relay)
