Water heater won't light
 
I have a 6 year old AO Smith propane water heater, model #GPSH 50-101. The heater wont light by itself and shows an error code that the system is in lockout.If I unplug the unit from the wall and plug it back in it tries to light 3 times and shuts itself off and shows the same error code.If I unplug the 3 wires that go to hot surface ignitor and sensor and plug them back in,it will light and work great. Do I need to replace these parts or could it be something else?
