Verify voltage of secondary again and check for correct location of leads on the control board.

You need a digital meter, check across both wires/connectors for 24 volts.

Or if you remove the stat cover you can check there as well, across R and C or R and any of the other terminals. R will be the 24 volts coming from the control board in the furnace. If it's there than it's good at the board.

The furnace door switch needs to be in to provide power to the board which in turn provides power everywhere else, so have the doors on.

On the r and rc there is a jumper on the tstat. I checked and it said 24 volts on it. I touched the rc to another wire on tstat and it jumped to 50 volts does this help? Maybe the stat is wired wrong?

What you can do is turn the breaker to the air handler off, from the thermostat remove the wires from the R and the G terminals or the R and the Y terminals ar even the R and the W1 terminals, twist them together (one set at a time using the R as the constant such as r and G), flip the breaker back on and see if the unit runs.

R and G = fan on only )inside blower)

R and Y = cooling so the outside should come on as well as the inside blower

R and W = heat, no outside.

I just tested the red wires at the thermostat and no 24 volts the lights to the board still don't come on. I do have 26 volts on the otherside of the transformer. I also chaged out the condensor board and still nothing. I just went through cut all the wires to the ltv board and redid them to the specs in the diagram and still not working. I am about to cry> Should I still try to twist the stat wires together?

sorry.
I guess the main question is why is the control board not lighting up when I put the breaker on?
