I currently have couple of rules when I arm the system in AWAY or VACATION mode it would turn the Valve OFF and when DISARM it would turn the Valve ON.

Now I still want to do the same thing except how do I write rules such that the VALVE ON between 3:00-6:00 A.M because I have a lawn sprinkler system now.

PLEASE spell out exactly if possible because I've tried but it doesn't work. I think my problem has something to do with the rules involving things after midnight

The simpliest Rule to turn on a valve at 3:00 AM and off at 6:00AM is:

WHENEVER THE TIME IS 3:00 AM
THEN TURN ON OUTPUT XX FOR 3 HRS AND 0 MINS

You can put the turn on time and the duration in Custom Values and change them from the keypad or ELKRP at will.

WHENEVER THE TIME IS WaterOnTime (Cust Set 1) //Custom Setting 1 will be a time value set for 3:00 AM
THEN TURN OUTPUT XX ON FOR SprinklerTime (Cust Set 2) //The run time will be in seconds. ie. 10800 seconds for 3 hours.
