    Do the controller lights flash when you when try to give a command? have you checked to see if your main power cable is properly connected? try pulling the main power and reattaching. check to see if you have 12 volts to the coils. the unit is low side switched so all the coils should have 12 volt power.

    Yes the controller flashes when i try to give it a command. I unhooked the cables then hooked them back up. I have to find my volt tester. I used a test light to see if i had power to the solenoid it was getting late and i didn't want the wires under the cover to get to wet it was still snowing. Can you tell me what to check? I will go outside and test everything you tell me.

    Thanks

    Make sure you have power to the red/black wire and the red/white wire.

    Turn the controller off. Then go stand beside the pump and turn the controller back on. Do you hear a "Click" from the module? Do the controller buttons flash on their own shortly after you first turn it on? The flicker and the "click" should happen at the same time.

    Check to be sure all the pins are properly set in the plugs. Sounds like the power lead wasn't making contact.
