Question about Rain Bird Xerigation XCZ-100
I have an issue with my rainbird system where at random times the controller at random times says I have "bad wiring" . I think the problem is thst I am running 2 pumps on the system at the same time with 2 separate pump relay switches. The controller gives me two wire slots for the common, so I added a second common to wire to the second switch relat switch to start the additional pump. It worked for a while but the same problem happen again. Any ideas what I could do differently?

Resetting involves reprogramming, but that's easy to do. You probably have a cheat sheet, like I do.
Unplug the timer, remove the battery, and go have a cold drink (let it sit for about 10 minutes. Reinstall the battery, plug it back in and you are good to go. Reprogram.

When the battery is removed and the power is off, it has to be reprogrammed when power is restored, but you knew that. Check that the battery was reinstalled properly, and that the 'wall power' is hot, and properly seated to the unit. This should do it.
Best regards, --W/D--

All you have to do is set the program 'A B' switch to the 'A' position. The program that you have set for A will run only. B is not active.

SOURCE: I have a Orbit 57161
Tech service 1-800-488-6156
Timer has 4 year warranty
The manual has troubleshooting
Looking through the manual I can see potential trouble areas:
-Water pressure too high > 60 psi is ordinary household pressure > order Brady BTG pressure gauge that connects to hose
-Overlapping times are 'stacked' by timer ... but 'more than one start time' is listed as cause of stations turning on when not supposed to >> reset and re-program timer, make chart of on-off times
-Weak or missing AA batteries >> clean terminal inside timer and replace batteries
-Hard water deposits or unfiltered water clogging water valve (water softeners frequently have this problem) >>> see if vinegar or CLR cleaner can help flush water valve >>> add sediment filter in front of timer
-Look at screen > does display show Manual? As in manual mode
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects
