Balboa control problems?

I have a 98 Saratoga spa with a Balboa Lite Leader control pack. The topside only has two buttons: lights/jets and temp. first issue, i can't seem to get the thing to change cycle times. the manual says "push the temp button then push the lights/jets button." that's it. not very good instructions if you ask me. i've tried this a hundred times and i can't tell if i'm even doing anything. usually i just end up changing the temp or turning the lights/jets on. there is no visual conformation that i'm changing anything. i need to change it to a 4hr cycle, not the default 2hr. any tips?
now all of a sudden, in the past day or two i have been hearing the spa turn on randomly and shut off after about a minute. it will do this every ten minutes for some time. i just cut the power to reset to default and we'll see if it goes away. i'm wondering if my circuit board is shot. or perhaps a sensor? or maybe the topside buttons? i dunno...any help would be appreciated. thanks!
