Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

These aren't fault codes, these are your code reader's designations for the engine controller and transmission control module. You'd need to enter each of these modules from the menu to read fault codes from them if you have a warning light on.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
