Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correctly.

This does not sound like a thermostat issue, if you are unsure you can jumper connect the RED (RH) wire to the WHITE (W) wire and see if it stays on longer. If it is only running for two minutes make sure the air filter is good and clean. If it still goes out that quick you may have an issue with the unit itself and would want to get it checked out under warranty. However you could see if any error codes start to flash or show on the board in the furnace as well just to see if the unit is detecting any problem.
