You might want to check that the sensors mounted on the side of your garage are lined up .... Also you can check the garage opener itself, there is a screw usually in the back with a +/- .. by turning this screw you adjust where the garage door stops if it is set too far on the + side it might be opening because of this

When the door closes, it automatically reopens. There are no obstructions so that isn't the issue. If I disconnect the door and cycle the automatic is closes and then immediately reopens.

make sure that the auto matic reverse circuit light is being read correctly. they is a light extending a beam of infared light, you can't see it, to a reflector across the garage at the floor level at the garage opening. There should be an indicator light, usually green and red. Line up the light and reflector until the green light comes on.

It sounds like the door is traveling too far in the down direction. When it hits the floor the safety causes it to reverse to the open position. You need to adjust the 'down limit' not the force.

Garage door opener

This is cause when there is something blocking one of the sensors. Look on each side of your garage door near the concrete when the door is closed and you will see small sensors that are facing each other.. Make sure they are not misaligned and that nothing is in front of them.
