Question about Honeywell Programmable Thermostat Heater
I am hooking up this new thermostat in place of an old honeywell. It has two wires, white and red. I connect those two per the instructions. I get nothing on the display, it doesn't light up. I have working batteries, still no display. Will the display light up before I connect it to the mounting plate?

You will have to have schematics from the old wiring diagram. Then you will have to confirm its consistency with actual old wiring before you can be sure that the wires run to the proper places on the old heater and a/c system. This sounds like a gas furnace and is simpler than a heatpump. Once you know what distinguishes the wires with the same color, you should label them and then you may call them a different color if they were wired with wrong wire colors. You may be in luck if you go to the furnace control box an look at the terminals.. They are usually labeled with a R for Red and W for white and Bl for Blue and B or Black. If you have other colors on these then it sounds that it was wired with wire spare wire by someone who knew what they were doing but neglected to leave a path for someone else follow.
You may be able to use a continuity tester of circuit tester to id these wires that are in question...
ie, once indintified, you can match with the requirements of the new stat.

On your thermostat - R is the power in terminal. Y is the cooling out. W is the heating out. (G is fan out). It does not matter which wire goes to R, the other should go to W - if no heat with a call, the thermostat is bad.

is the j2 jumper on the backside of the display set for hg instead of he - g is gas/oil e is electric - if correct take thermostat wires off screws and turn power back on - see if burner fires up with no thermostat wires connected - old wires could be touching somewhere when put on new thermostat
