** the continuity test (diode test) shows no continuity (no beep from multimeter and it shows 1)... the resistance test shows about 9.5 MegOhm **
Those seem to be to contradictory statements. NO continuity would be infinite resistance. ANY resistance would mean continuity.
If the ignitor has infinite resistance (aka no continuity), it is defective and needs to be replaced.
** I did also check the amperage as well and it reads 0 amp **
No current can flow through an open circuit. Someone just needs to isolate where that opening in the circuit is.
