a very common problem with the flame rod (sensor) is that over time a thin layer of carbon will build up on rod and send a false signal to the ignition module causing it to lock out.usually you can pull it out and carefully sand the flame rod.reinstall. Make sure you have a good connection to board. And a good ground to furnace where rod holder is attached.

gas pressure could be your problem. But not likely.you can buy a cheap manometer to check it though. If its locking out more often when its windy id think inducer fan, vent pipe,combustion air pipe or pressure switch.check tubing also.i dont know what the elevation is where you live. But if over 2000 ft you usually need a hi altitude pressure switch.as for limits they should ohm out 0 ohms.you can heat it and it should open.(infinate restince) youll hear it click.after it cools should close again.

It sounds like you may be dealing with an issue related to the airflow within your heating unit. When the door is closed, it seems the airflow is restricted, causing the unit to go into lockout mode as a safety precaution. This could be due to a variety of reasons, such as a clogged filter or blocked vents. I'd recommend reaching out to Oakville Appliance Repair for assistance. Their expertise in diagnosing and fixing appliance issues could help identify the root cause of the problem and get your heating unit back up and running efficiently.
