Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.The code P161B indicate a problem with the TCM (transmission control module) which usually means it has failed. In order to determine if that is the case you are going to need to do some testing. I have enclosed the test steps in the link below.
