    Hey guys I had a valve that wouldn't shut off and one that wouldn't shut on.

    I replace the solenoid in the one that wouldn't turn on. Tried to clean valve on the one that wouldn't turn on, then the customer just told me he went out there himself and changed. Now on the controller he said both valves are popping up error. Anyone have a clue?

    usually if a valve stays open, (when it didn't before) there's crap in the valve body that keeps it from closing. Also get a "Station Master Pro" and it will check the wiring & solenoid for you.

    First check at the controller, it will tell you if you have a broken connection, a short or if the solenoid is shot.

    To check the wiring, I'd hook it up at the faulty valve and go back to the controller & see where I get a tone (you can do this with an electrical tester) Hunter Pro C's aren't that difficult to wire since you wire directly into the terminal blocks... If it is wiring, it's probably in the field
