FURNACE WON'T LIGHT

2002 Volkswagen Eurovan • 40,000 miles

My 2002 has a Winnebago conversion, and the furnace blows cool air, apparently the igniter is not lighting. It worked when I tested it for the first time recently, but not now. Has plenty of propane and AC power. Can these be manually lit? Thanks!

No you cannot because any fault with the circuit would not open the gas valve. A non working igniter usually means a bad circuit board that has to be replaced.

Is this something I can easily do myself, or does it mean a trip to the vw specialty shop? Any ballpark on the cost? Could it be a fuse?

Not an easy job as the furnace has to be pulled out for the replacement and I would suggest getting professionals to do the job. As to pricing I am sorry I am not able to provide any. You would need to check locally.
