Do you have a question? lol

Since some of the valves come on the master valve wires are ok. If you want to double check to make sure there aren't two master valves, you could move the master valve wire to the number 1 slot by itself then turn on number 1. If none of the wires give you voltage at the break then the master valve wire is good. Put the wire back.

It should be simple from here. I'm guessing there's only 1 common wire. Figure out which one. The rest are zone wires.

Just use trial and error if you have to. Hook up the wires with the timer on and see what works.

I’ll keep at it. It’s just crazy, I feel like I found the common wire, I hook it up. Then I still can’t get any of the zones to work. I feel like it should be easy based on your feedback, but I just can’t get anything to turn on.

I’ll also try to see if there is an additional main valve wire like you stated.

I feel like one wire is out of place and that’s the one that needs to be hooked up correctly to get it to work.

@Mrfixit I had an irrigation guy come out to hook up all the wires. All worked well. Now I have a new issue, the main valve is not getting power to open EXCEPT when using zone 2. Any ideas?

It sounds like a wiring issue. You should ask the guy to come back. I'd have you move the number 2 wire to the master valve/pump terminal but you said they were working fine when he left. Maybe one of his common wire connections came apart.

What doesn't make sense is now zones 10-13 are not coming on and they were before, even with all of the wires being cut in my original post. I wouldn't think that any of those wires had anything to do with it.

In the meantime I assume that I can turn on the main valve manually and they all should activate, correct?

It could be the common wire to those valves came off. Could be the water's shut off to those valves.
