RUUD Silhouette II: Irregular on/off pattern while operating

RUUD Silhouette II
Model: UGLH-07NAUER
Serial: FD5D702F350103921

I have two issues going on. In both cases, thermostat is functioning.

1. For several days, after engaging the thermostat to turn on the heat, nothing happens. No fan, no burner, no ignition. 2 green lights running the entire time. I'll turn on/off the furnace, no impact. I'll reset the thermostat, no direct impact. Then randomly the heater will kick on (sometimes after 2 mins, sometimes after 10). Can't find a pattern or cause.

2. When the furnace is running, it almost always runs for several minutes, then the blower, burners and fan turn off. Then the whole start-up operation restarts immediately, fan kicks on, ignition, then blower. Sometimes this will happen several times until the thermostat temp indicated is reached.

I'm not seeing any error indications (flashing lights). I've cleaned the flame sensor rod as best I can while mounted.

Any thoughts or insights? Many thanks.

how old is the thermostat? i would attempt to replace that first, otherwise, sounds like a board issue. but thermostat is most cost effective.
