Solar light on pentair easy touch panel doesn't come on....

My solar light stopped coming on automatically at the beginning of the schedule for pool and cleaning. It also won't come on when I press the button above the solar "sun" symbol when the pump and aux3 (Cleaner) lights are on in the auto mode. I've double checked the settings for designatiing solar heating and the temperature readings for the pool is 81 and maximum solar heating temperature is set to 100.
I recently found a broken wire (damn rats) to the air sensor which had caused an "Air Err Frz" message which went away after I repaired the wires. I also recently cleaned the filter and the intelichlor system.
I will greatly appreciate any helpful suggestions on how to fix this problem.
Thanks!

The "sun" light should only come on if you press the button in service mode, only should come on when solar is active in auto mode, you may want to check in the diagnostics menu if the solar temperature is reading correctly, if you are seeing a reading of 255 or any error codes, replace the sensor? Splicing an repairing the sensor may not fix the issue of a broken wire. Your diagnostics in solar will determine the issue.
