I just moved into a new home. There are at least three watering systems of differing ages and non-usage throughout the property. I am trying to understand what works and what does not. Specifically I am trying to understand how these

There is a very old watering system timer box in the garage. Zones 1 and Zones two trun on sprinkers in the front yard. Zones 4-7 do nothing that I can see.
The is no help from the owners, they left no information and clearly they are people that continually added things rather than fix or repair an existing system. The sprinklers I do not really care about, but the drip system I am interested in ussing again. When we arrived theywere on, servieing some potted plants on the front porch.
I turned the x shaped handle on top to off and did hear the water system shut off, but since then I cannot seem to get them back on again. They are wired into some system, but there is no indication that the timer in the garage enables or disables any part of this system. The drip lines encircle the entire house and some look dryer and have less use than others. Here are two more
images of the type of system.
Any guidance on how to understand and rehabilitate this system would be greatly appreciated.
