Tempstar 5000 Furnace Ingnitor problem

The electronic ignitor is not lighting the gas heating element. This is an electronic pilot, not a gas pilot. How do I solve this problem?

Ignitor

Somewhere between the ignition control & the ignitor the wires should plug together. Unplug them & use a voltmeter in the contol half of the plug to check for 120 volts during an ignition sequence. If you get 120 the ignitor is probably bad.
The only thing which can be done is replacing the ignitor.
