When set on automatic timer, Sprinkler system will go back…

Customer Question
When set on automatic timer...
When set on automatic timer, Sprinkler system will go back and forth between the same two zones for the entire duration of time. We have five zones and the sprinklers are on a well. All the sprinkler heads are in perfect condition and the system will rotate all five zones when done manually.
How do we get the sprinkler system to go through all five zones automatically?
We moved into this house a year ago and the lawn is dying in many places.

What kind of sprinkler system do you have so I can try and look up some instructions for you?

An old one. Nothing marked on it.

Everything works perfect, manually. When it is set to go on automatically, it will only go back and forth between two zones

Since I am not sure what system you have I have found some basic information I can provide. Does your unit have a name anywhere on the control system or anything?
