furnace won't stay lit

I have a comfortmaker RPJ ll natural gas furnace. The problem I am having is it will light the burner and stay on for a second or two then the burner will shut off. I will get a steady flashing light at the control unit which I am sure you are aware of means no call for heat. I have replaced the flame sensor and the rollout sensor in the past ( maybe a year ago). It seems as though this problem is intermittent. Since some times the furnace works great and like now it does not. It is always flashing the same code, steady. Thanks in advance for any help to resolve my problem

Clean the flame sensor with fine steel wool or similar. I clean mine yearly. If that does not cure the problem, let us know.

It seems like that was the problem since it is still working great.
