Problem with one zone

I have a 12 zone system which works fine except for one zone. When this zone turns on, the pump switches on and off several time in quick succession, and then will run for about 10-15 seconds, and then go back to this rapid switching on and off, then back to running for 10-15 seconds again. Water is dribbling out of the sprinklers in this zone when this is happening.

As I said, all other zones are working fine.

Any ideas and help in this matter would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance

Are the valves near each other where you can swap wires to see if you still have the same problem?

Also try moving the problem zone at the controller to a different terminal you know works and see what happens.
