good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist in most cases, the valve gets stuck from debris from the oil. I suggest flushing the oil system completely and ten replace the assembly. it comes with a switch and new screen. the fact that the code returns immediately indicates a electrical issue with the solenoid. I will attach some info on the code for you to review Roy
