Does indoor or outdoor either one come on? Do you have a volt meter for troubleshooting?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
indoor unit turns on when I flip the switch to on instead of auto. But it does not turn on if I leave everything on auto
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.

Can you do some hands on troubleshooting and do you have a meter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i can do some hands on troubleshooting but don't have a meter, only a basic wand one
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.

Go to main thermostat and remove cover. Disconnect wires from R, Y and G and twist them together and tell me if fan and ac come on.

is that the one in the basement that controls all the zones? or one of the zone thermostats?

Take your time

Done. The furnace "clicked" on but nothing is running. the indicator lights for the system and zone one are both green.
Expert:  airheatman replied 1 year ago.

To be honest,I am not familiar with that zone board and would be guessing to try to troubleshoot it.I am going to open to other experts who may be rather than guess.

I have opted out of the question to see if perhaps other experts may have more information and can assist.Please do not rate or reply as that will send question back to my desk and delay getting assistance..Please stand by to see if another expert can assist further.
