Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
From the symptoms it sounds like you need to test the float switch, the float switch in the tank is most likely bad and needs to be replaced. It can sometimes get stuck as well from when the tank was low before filled thus check not stuck and if not test and it is most likely bad showing no/low oil to the computer hence the problem.
In which case if it tests bad replacing it would cure the problem, also check wiring and check no loose connections or shorted wires, corrosion, etc.
Thank you!
