    Assuming that the pump motor is turning when u hit up, left or right, it sounds like u have multiple valve problems. If S3 was stuck open and S1 was not opening it would do what u describe. Since u have replaced all the wiring and coils that leaves only controller and valves. If u have access to a different controller that's an easy test. Just plug it in and try it, if that doesn't work u know its valves. S1 and S3 are the two outside valves. Pull the coils off and then pull them like spark plugs. Just make sure u have a jack under to relieve the pressure (if it is stuck up) or it will drop when u pull S1.

    I can speak from experience with a bad controller. I thought for sure I had other problems, but the controller ended up being bad. You can also directly power the controller with 12v and use a test light to see if it is functioning correctly.

    Good luck.

    U can test the controller on non-multiplex models but it's not simple. U need to b sure u don't put power and or ground to the wrong pins or u can toast it. And u need to know what output to expect. Just plugging in a different controller is easier if u have one.

    My money is on the controller! Check that first.
