I read both posts and you are in over your head.

1. check the line power into the controller.
2. check the vac at each station.
3. short to earth resistance measurements of all field wires at both ends for comparison.
4. measure resistance/continuity of each station.
5. measure the resistance of both the wiring back to the controller and the isolated solenoid.

Once you have performed and documented all of these measurements you can post the results and let the games begin.
