No stations come on

I have a Kwikdial KD9. This was working fine in the fall, and I went to test this the other day and now no zones work.

I have tried running it by running each zone in manual mode, but no luck.

It blinks and counts down the minutes, but no water is coming out. I did replace the controller last summer because it kept showing the 'no battery' icon.

Is there something I can do to help diagnose the problem? I don't mind replacing the controller, but I would like to verify that is the problem prior to buying a new one.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

See if the system can be manually activated by way of the zone valves. That will allow you to see if the water is actually on and flowing. If you get the system running that way, then you can explore the possibility of an electrical fault in the system wiring, or a rain detector that has failed.
