I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

this code is usually caused by an internal seal inside the transmission that fails and causes false errors. the fix is to replace this internal seal and also the external mechatronics sealing sleeve at the same time

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
