Answer
Sorry for the delay, for some reason this service is not sending me emails.

The valve needs 24v to work.  If you only have 12v, then that is why it is not working.  You need to check the transformer to see that it is putting out 24v.  You might have a low pressure switch that has to be reset due to the gas being turned off.
