First, check whether the Ignitor is igniting the Heater, If the Ignitor is not letting the spark it would be the problem with the Ignitor, check for the cracks in the ignitor..

For changing the Ignitot follow these steps,

You can buy only the ignitor which is a small part, try soldering it into it by removing the old ignitor, Its Easy shmeasy job. Any one can do it. Otherwise you're looking at a few hundred bucks vs $20-30 at the most....

Sometime if you're fortunate, you may only need to sand the carbon off the ignitor if no crack found in the ignitor!

Please revert me, if you need more assistance, i would be very glad to assist you more.

Put the key in the ignition - don;t turn it yet. Press the odometer reset button until the total mileage shows (not the trip mileage). Then press and hold the odometer in and turn the ignition on - don't start the car just turn it all the way before it starts. You will see dashes across the odometer and once they are gone turn the ignition off and that will reset it.

The solution may be just to grab the steering wheel and turn to left or right, some slight resistance may be felt as you turn, and at the same time try to turn the key in the ignition.

The two cooling fans in my 1998 campy 4cyl don't shut of after I turn off ignition

The fans will run until your engine is cooled to a set temperature. Ignition is not a factor.

Program new key for montana

As long as you still have one that works, it's easy.
1) Insert the "original" (working) Key.2) Turn the Ignition to ON (RUN), but do NOT start the engine. Turn the Ignition OFF and remove the key.3) Within 15 seconds insert the new key and turn the Ignition to the ON (just to ON, not to START) position. The Security indicator should light up for about 2 seconds to indicate that the new key has been programmed.
At that point, it should work. I don't know how many different keys you can get the Theft Deterrent Module to recognize; there may be a limit.
If you're don't have a working key now, it's much more time-consuming;the procedure to get the TDM to recognize a different key takes about 30 minutes when you don't have an old one that works.

How to reset the oil message

Turn the ignition on (so dash lights come on) and stomp the gas pedal to the floor and release. Do this 3 times in 5 seconds leaving the ignition on. Wait 30 seconds, or until the message finishes flashing, then turn the ignition off. All set and don't stomp too hard!

I have a Hotpoint gas range that has electric ignition for the oven. However, I don't have electric at my cabin. Is there a conversion kit for a straight pilot ignition available? The model number is...

Most gas ranges with electronic ignition aren't equipped to have a straight pilot ignition.
I'm don't even think they make conversion kit because of the routing of the gas tubing for the pilot source.

Usually you have to turn the gas knob way over to get the "click-click-click" of the igniter.
Its just as easy to turn on the gas and light with a match...or a long butane lighter.
Even a "striker" used in welding will provide a source of ignition.
A last ditch effort would be to get a replacement gas grill igniter...all ya gotta do is place the bottom of igniter on metal surface and press red button. (kinda works like a spark plug) and no A/C needed.

Hope this helps some.

The ignition goes on but gas dose not goes on.the oven is GE about 20 year old. the ignition is electric. Not sure model # AT501820J

by ignition goes on I assume that you can see it glowing ..these are just tiny heating elements and when they get to a certain current they open the gas valve and it ignites. These little elements over time start to loose there effectivness and either take a realy long time to open the gas valve or don,t open it at all. The igniter is realatively cheap and easy to change if you're inclined give it a try... turn off the gas turn of the electricity and be carefull, I will warn you however I,ve done lots of these and in a small number of cases it turns out to be the gas valve itself ...don,t do that one unless you are familiar with gas valves and have exactly the right tools Good Luck
