Pat's advice about the wires is right on if the controller isn't next to 
the valves.  I had one zone that was initially intermittent due to a bad 
wire.  When it failed, I had to dig up wire to two different manifolds 
(the far one followed the path of the near one).  The bad install came 
as part of the house, but now both those manifolds have 1/2 PCV conduit 
protecting the wires.  One run has a LB junction at the end.  The other 
has a single gang box for the wire junctions.  Brown wire blends in with 
brown dirt, so it is tough to see if you dig.
