Relief Valve issue on one of four zones

Hello, not sure if I'm asking this question in the right spot. I purchased a new house that has a well pump irrigation system with 4 zones. Three of the four zones work fine. The zone closest to the well pump has an issue where when that zone is on, the relief valve at the top of the well line sprays out a lot of water. None of the sprinklers work on this zone when this happens. Is it possible that one of my lines on this zone are cloggedcausing a major pressure build up?

Find the trouble valve and manually open it, then try that zone again.

Valve wasn't opening because one of the wires were loose on the controller. Problem fixed! Thanks
