Rain Bird Valve Question

I have a 100 DV 3 Valve control system for my sprinkler. Until recently, it worked fine. Now, for whatever reason, two of the zones are now control by one of the valves so the water pressure is very low. I do not know what has occurred or how to fix it. Any guess? I appreciated the guidance!

Now two of my zones run at the same time so I have crummy water pressure on those two zones.
Is this what you are trying to say?

Kind of. I am trying to figure out how to separate the zone or increase the pressure.

Is this what you are trying to say?

If they didn't run together before but do now you could have a myriad of problems. Controller, crossed wires, MV issue. My advice is to find a professional in your area and let them troubleshoot this.
