Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The trans controller has seen an issue that can cause damage or it thinks it doesn't have complete control and is setting a fault code. This is why you see the warning. There are many possible causes for this including internal transmission issues, speed sensors, solenoids, wiring, and even the trans controller itself. If the problem happens only when attempting a shift into sixth gear then that may indicate a clutch or geartrain issue in the trans.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool to see what fault codes are setting in the trans controller and go from there.
