Never worked on a boiler system before. If you post pictures of the connections at the thermostat and boiler we might be able to figure it out.

Ok you asked....  ;D

Thermostat: (the 3 middle wires come from one cable, the other 2 do not)



Zone controller which is then connected to the boiler:

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Need more info. Which wires are you touching? Did you separate any wires that were together?
There's only 3 wires black white and neutral. Didn't separate any. Could be I touched more than one at once but not sure.. just a simple home fixture

I just thought that if it's off it should all be dead..

Normally yes but I am thinking a bad neutral.

If I could I wouldn't be looking for a tone generator  ;)

You have one cable with three wires. You can't see where that goes? Do you see those three color wires connected anywhere on the zone controller?

Look at the diameter of the wires also. You can see they are different. Will help in locating them.

Now we've come to the point of the project, the 3 middles ones I'm told are for an AC yet this stat only controls my heat, the AC is an entirely separate system with its own stat. So, my goal is to see if those 3 wires do in fact go nowhere and if one of them can function as the infamous C wire that most newer stats require

Google the thermostat to see the wire hookup. It will should which is for AC/Heat.

 I tried to here but in the end I gave up. Now I'm attempting again and on this second round I thought ....if those 3 wires do in fact go nowhere and if one of them can function as the infamous C wire...

So those control your AC?
