Ignition Problem Comfortmaker

I've got a Comfortmaker furnace with a Honeywell board. The only way I can get it to fire up is to turn the unit on at the thermostat and then go to the furnace and wiggle the ignition/spark wire where is connects to the control board. I've replaced the connection at the end of the wire and have lightly sanded the pin coming from the board.

When I wiggle it, I'll hear the spark and then the furnace will fire up. Do you think I need to replace the board? Anything else I can do? Your help is appreciated.

Ignition problem

Before you replace the board, make sure all grounds are good (clean & tight) & replace the ignition wire. Ignition wires are a lot cheaper than boards.

Good thinking. I'll check the grounds. For the ignition wire, would it be the wire itself or will it come with the ceramic piece/metal rod on the end? I took it out and it looks like it's all comes as one unit.

Ignition Wire

Usually they come as two separate parts but yours could be made as one piece. Your parts supplier should be able to tell you.
