Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.

    On the old spark plug heaters you could bypass the photocell to test. Not so on the new HSI heaters, The only way to test is either with the HA1170 ($150) diagnostic tool or to simply replace. Like the new cars- replace a part to see if it solves the problem.
