Errr3 displays on my control panel

I spoke with once before about this problem. I have a Rain Bird System ESP-6TM, SN: 1129390. Rather to be safe than sorry and repeating the whole process again, I have replaced all the Solenoids and the Diagrams' as well, I rechecked all my wire connection and cleaned them off and inserted new water proof caps with the lubrication already inside the caps. Twisted everything tight and even used electrical tape to keep them all together at each connection. 1, and 2 zones work perfectly but zone 3 will not come on, I keep getting the Errr3 messages. Can you please help me.


I Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter of mine.

Switch the wires at the controller. 2 for 3 and see if the problem moves. See if the timer says err2 or if it still says err3.
I'm assuming it'll say err2 but if it doesn't, there's a problem with the timer. Maybe do a factory reset and see if that clears it up.

If it does say err2, then the wiring is bad. Like the casing is off of the wires and the common wire is touching the number 3 wire. Is there an unused wire you can hook up in place of wire 3?

Errr3

I don't have an extra wire free to hook up but, I will try to switch the wires around on the Solenoids. Thank You.


I will get back to you about what happens.

Switch the wires at the timer or you might be bypassing the problem.

Errr3

I've tried everything you said to do but, to no avail I still get the same Errr3 message on my display. What is your expert advice/opinion on solving this problem. Thank You. ?(

If you swapped the wires at the solenoids you're still going to get an err3. If you swapped them at the timer it should say err2. Err2 would mean the wiring's bad.
Try a factory reset and see if you still get the err3.. Try disconnecting the number 3 wire totally from the timer, still get an err?
