rainbird esp me system displaying that it's watering but its not

I have a newer Rainbird ESP me irrigation system using reclaimed water. The lawn was getting a little dry so I tried to manually run the system using both the test all stations and manual program options to water it. The system showed that it was watering but it wasn't. I can't get it to actually water no matter what I try but the system always shows as working. Any ideas?

Something may be interfering with electrical continuity. Obvious suspects are broken wires or faulty rain detectors.

Can you run the system without the controller, by way of the zone valve manual operators?
