The inducer comes on and makes a pressure switch which allows the gas valve to open the pilot valve.

You need a new draft motor. You also need check out the warranty on that

Can you turn the inducer by hand? Could be a bird or something else is stuck in the fan.

Years ago my brother bought an older cottage with a natural gas furnace.When I got there to clean it I found three starlings and 1 and 1/2 squrils dead in the flue and draft hood area.The other half must have burnt up,at least I hope thats what happened LOL.
