Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

This code is for the front brake solenoid in the transmission. The solenoid responds the the vehicle speed, accelerator pedal and throttle position.

Is this the only code you have? No other codes?

Ok, Thank you. This particular code will need to spend some time to isolate and diagnose. The most common thing is the Valve Body. But you want to check the fluid and make sure it's not pink and Milky also. If it is, then you have cross contamination and the transmission would need to be replaced.

If your fluid is fine, this could simply be a Valve body issue since the TCM is built into it. But when it's replaced it will need to be programmed. So it maybe something you want to have the dealer check for you and program if it needs to be replaced.

Do you have any more questions on this?
