    Not to repeat my self but in my case what would the process be to get this started? For all I know I have been doing it wrong.
    Turn on gas, turn on valve, flip switch. If it does nothing then you have a problem.

    The valve looks like a Honeywell smart valve which requires a signal from a controller such as a T-stat or ignition control assembly to light the pilot. It appears to have a hot surface ignition system. Where do the black, blue and red wires go to?

    You have been a ton of help qwerty thanks,

    I have done it in that process and nothing has happened, is there anything that I can do or check that can be in the scope of a diyer? I like to support my skilled traders but if its something that is manageable this is knowledge I would like to build up.

    I just worked on a fire place very similar to this one and the little box you are referring to has a switch with off, remote and manual positions.

    You may be on to it. I don't do any but thought it may be something easy.

    Well unfortunately there where no knobs on the little box, ill post pics in the morning. The box was warm to the touch so I know it's got juice. Turned on the main gas, bottom gas, on switch, flipped the wall switch and nothing not even a click.

    Turn your gas on, flip the switch on, turn the wall switch on. when you do that it should begin sparking at the pilot, if it doesn't the module could be bad, the wall switch could be bad and/or you are getting no power to the module.

    oops missed the second page, the last picture is a transformer, that powers the valve. the brown wire that runs in the side of the firebox on the last picture, where does that hook up?
