I know it's the wiring, but...

Hi, total sprinkler noob here. I've got one sprinkler zone that shorts the whole system. The controller is a Rainbird ESP-8si. The problem zone comes on fine for about 5 minutes and then shuts the whole system down. The controller box loses power and needs to be reset. The rest of the zones operate with no problems if you skip the problem zone or run it for less than 5 minutes. I know it's a wiring problem, but what should I be looking for and where? Thanks!

Consider changing the solenoid.
