I found this description of what an inducer does:
"A furnace draft inducer blower is a relatively new component of modern furnaces that became part of heating units after government-mandated efficiency standards were enacted. The draft inducer blowers purpose is to move air and gases out of the furnace and up through the chimney. This component determines how much and how fast air will move through the heat exchange unit."
If the motor is not functioning properly then it could affect the readings you are getting. Also not sure if you mean readings in the house. If this is the case you need to resolve this situation as carbon monoxide is dangerous. It may be possible for cracks to form that could cause a problem.
Since this is such a critical piece of equipment and safety issue I really recommend that you get a certified HVAC tech to come and check it out.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
