Trane XR80 not starting

Hello, My Trane XR80 doesn't turn on. The red light has a slow steady blink, about 1 every second which I believe means that it is not calling for heat. If I open the door and hold down the button, I hear a click but the burner does not ignite and the fan does not come on. If I switch the thermostat fan to "On", the fan will turn on, but in "auto" nothing happens. The thermostat does say "heat", but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Welcome to the forums.

A slow steady blink signifies a normal system and no call for heat.
It sounds like your thermostat may have an issue.
If it takes batteries..... try replacing them.

You can try temporarily jumping the R terminal to the W terminal at the furnace and see if it starts up.
