[B]TRANE Gas Heater Requires Wire Jiggle to Fire[/B]

My TRANE gas heater is about 12 years old. When it tries to come on, it clicks and clicks; however, it won't fire. If I jiggle a wire that runs into a thin, white plug-like harness, it fires right away. Do you have any ideas about what I can do to fix this? Thanks very much.

Puzzled100, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Sounds like a loose wire or a corroded connection. I am not the expert in this subject but you could unplug the connector and clean the connection or at least inspect it for corrosion. On some connectors the plastic shield slides back so you can see if the wire is connected to the blades of the connector. Good luck and keep watching this post for the expert opinions.
