Hi, the furnace control module is not processing the signal that it lit, and it shuts down as a safety precaution........it is a '3 try board" which is why it tries to light itself a couple of times, unfortunatly, you will need to replace the control board to resolve your issue, please get back to me and we can discuss this further
