    Just installed a new 4 station Rain Bird ESP-ME controller at my house today. Just not sure what connection on the module is for the rain sensor. There are no rain sensor terminals on the module. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Starts at 530AM runs the 3 zones 8, 10, 14 minutes so at about 602AM it should be all done. Well, no it continues to run repeating the zones pass 630AM then I get out of bed go to the controller and set the dial to OFF. Now it is off. Set the dial to AutoRun and the next water-cycle-day the same past 602AM running repeats. Get out of bed ...

    Not sure what the controller re-set (hidden) button does, but does not clear any keyed entries to wipe the slate clean.

    Sounds like you have another start time on whatever program you have running those zones.

    illanrob, did you set a start time for each zone? One start time starts the program. Or maybe you set up the same thing on A,B,C &D.

    Look at the bright side, he doesn't need an alarm clock to get him out of bed. :p
