Still searching for clarification. As you can see my knowledge on electricity is a bit limited.

Thank you!

Begin with your resistance measurements. Document them and then do the same with your voltage measurements. Measure both static and dynamic voltage.

Measure the dynamic first and then remove all of the zone wires for you static measurements. Reconnect one of the problematic wires and measure the vacant terminals while running the zone. If there is no voltage on the vacant terminals, the controller is prolly ok

I would measure a few other things but, that's me.
