you have to perform the proper tests to identify the condition of the wiring between the controller and each solenoid.

You stated that the system has been subjected to lightening. A short to earth measurement tells you if the insulation is good or not.

Standard continuity measurements tell you if the wiring is intact and the resistance of the solenoid.

Proper wire sequencing and identification can also be performed using the continuity range.

I listed the testing and information i would need for an evaluation earlier in the thread.

You have to gather enough information and present it so that those of us that are not on site can point you in the right direction rather than throw out some bullshit theory that they won't or can't back up and confuse the matter more.

I would like to help you but since i can't test it myself, i have to rely on you to supply the information.

You might enlist (hire) someone to work with you and learn from him.
