OK, turn the power off to the furnace then connect the thermostat leads on R & W terminals together and turn the power back on. Does the furnace respond/fire up?

Pretty small screw head I have nothing that fits
Expert:  Rick replied 10 months ago.

Well you need to do this to rule the thermostat in or out as the problem. If you need a new thermostat and want to replace it yourself you'll have to get the right sized screwdriver anyway.
