lennox G23 pilot problem

Hi! I've got a lennox G23(x) gas furnace. I'm having pilot problems. First I replaced mechanical thermostat with programmable one but I didn't change jumper on BCC Blower control board from mechanical thermostat to electric thermostat.It's been at least a year. I switched jumper when problem started. Now I'm having problems with the pilot control. It's a Johnson Controls " Intermittent Pilot Control (IPI). The LED code says "1 sec/5 sec off" In retry period. LED shuts off after couple minutes. Fans shut off after about 5 minutes. Did I screw something up by not changing jumper. If so what went might have gone bad? the pilot control? I can fire up furnace by shutting it all down and following the initial start up. But next cycle it won't light. I also have a White Rodgers 36E Gas Valve.

any ideas, no big hurry, I'm in Chicago, weathers been pretty mild. just cool at night! ...........thanks, jcon
