The orange wire in rubber sounds like your spark ignition wire, so you must have electronic ignition on the furnace. Which means when there is a call for heat the pilot sparks and lights, correct? So if your pilot comes on but not the main burners the pilot assembly must not be sensing flame. Does the pilot assembly have like a metal rod? If so try cleaning it with sandpaper.
