Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.
So the inducer fan or nothing tries to start correct?
Ok does the ignitor glow or what error flashes on the board when it does not light?
The ignitor may be broken on the unit I would check that visually or oh it out with a ohm meter. That could be the whole issue here Very common issue as well.

Yes it should you may have a spark ignitor system, see if there is any black porcelain on the ignitor or if it is just metal rods.
Can you take a pic of it and upload it here?
Yeah that has a lot of soot, something may not be lighting or burning right. That is a spark ignition system, clean off the rods really good with sandpaper and retry it. You may want the unit serviced by an HVAC company to inspect the manifold for any cracks.
