If I understand correctly, you have electronic ignition that ignites the pilot, then the pilot ignites the burners. Please confirm that this is the case.

Also please advise whether or not you are handy with a multimeter as you will likely need it to diagnose the problem.

looking around her furnace room I see someone has replaced the gas valve before the furnace is about 10 yrs old .

Do you mean the gas valve was replaced before the furnace was 10 years old? OR The gas valve was replaced and the furnace is currently 10 years old?

Please use proper grammar in your posts. Just because you know what you are talking about doesn't mean everyone else will:
