These furnaces have notoriously bad circuit boards. The light will give you a diagnostic code and after you have replaced every component there it still will not work right. Need to know more specifically the order of events happening. the blower should turn on (draft blower) then after a second a click and you will see the ignitor glow bright orange then click the gas valve opens and the burners light. most of the time this will all happen and then the flame in all burners will go out and it will attempt the whole process over. if this is the case turn power off and then remove the circuit board from the 4 retainer clips and look at the back 9 times out of 10 the board will be dark brown in one or two spots large spots at that. time to replace the circuit board. They have updated the board and it is being made by a different company now. Take a picture of the board before you remove any wires so you can replace the wires in the proper location.

You may have a plugged air filter, the air intake or exhaust pipes could have a blockage causing the switch from closing. The little tube going from the inducer blower to the pressure switch could have some moisture or drbris in it. The condensate hose from the inducer to drain could be plugged or you could have a bad inducer or pressure switch.

My Goodman GMP 125-4 furnace has 4 blinking lights and we currently are unable to get it to come on. What might be wrong?

if this is an error code and you mean that the light blinks 4 times then it is the limit circuit. This could mean either the high limit or a roll out switch is open. the limit switch is right in the center of the furnace above the burner and roll out switches are probably somewhere around the opening of the burner. Follow the wires from the limit to find a roll out switch cause they are in line with each other and the rool out switch could have a button to reset it. However if the roll out is not tripped then you could need to change the limit. Only way to know is to check for continuity.

Goodman GDS80904BNA LED Blinks 3 Times

had similar problems with same furnace. I think the 3 blinks is high limit event. either way with the power off to the furnace remove the board from the 4 clips holding it on one at a time then turn it over and look at it you will be able to tell if the board is bad because it will appear scortched and the resin will be bubbled up where it went bad. replace board and you will be fine. went through 2 in 2 years all of a sudden they are being made by a different company from the original and the 1st replacement. now all is fine. Take a good picture of the board close up so you can reconnect all the wires properly. Friend of mine got it from a wholesaler for $55.00

My goodman furnace light blinks 4times

OK you could have a plugged air filter, the limit switch could have blown or the room air blower is not working. Clean or replace the air filter. Make sure all wire connections are tight. If it still does not operate, you will need to call your technician.

That pressure switch closes for a run condition. check for continuity between the plugs on it with the induction fan running. If its closed, change the board if not change the switch.
The switch will tell you its pressure rating on the label and its best to just use the same rating. Easiest to get it from a Goodman Parts Supplier. You can order it on the internet, should have a part number on the label or just use the model and serial of the furnace. Locally you will probably have to buy it from someone in the trade.

the pressure switch is closed before the draft motor closes it.the board is telling you that this is not right.pull the wire(either) off of the pressure switch to see if furnace tries to light.if it does,you should replace the pressure switch.
