Is this an electric or gass furnace - Eather of these can can have this problem its most recomendable that you call a seviceman .
in the case of electric furnace you may requier a new heat sequencer. And in the case of gass you may requier a new relay.

Ours was worse than yours. It was not frozen up, but it did need freon. The tech told us that the compressor coil (the unit in the attic) was leaking freon and that the unit would have to be replaced within a year, but adding freon dropped the temperature inside from the mid-80s to the mid-70s (on 100 degree days). It might go lower, but we don't set the thermostats below 76. We paid $80 for the service call plus another $197 for 3 lbs of freon (for our 4-ton unit). Total cost: $274. The quote to replace the system with a new 14 SEER unit is $7,000 -- but this will get us through the summer. Oh, be sure to replace your filters monthly and keep your condensor fins clean. Spray them down with a hose (even while the unit is running), make sure there are no leaves or other trash blocking them, and make sure you have 2 feet of clearance around the condensor. Putting plants or other objects right up against it will impede its operation. Good luck!

I have serviced these furnaces for 20 years and I can tell you most of these models did not have diagnostic lite on them. (although some did, especially if the control board has been replaced) The problem is most likely a bad 3 wire pilot. This will cause exactly what you describe. 2 things to consider though. 1, If you were to replace the pilot don't get a cheaper knockoff. In my experience these do not last long at all. Get the right one from a carrier dealer. It will cost more but be much more reliable. 2 What is the condition of the secondary heat exchanger? Most if not all of the sx series had issues with the secondary heat exchangers rotting out and leaking. If the furnace is out of warranty you would be much better replacing the furnace as the cost of replacing the secondary heat exchanger will probably be almost the same as a new furnace. ( those babies are EXPENSIVE!)
