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 are solenoid circuit codes. These can set because of an internal failure in the trans controller, a wiring issue between the TCM and trans, or the solenoids themselves.

If you clear the codes with a battery disconnect and drive the car, what codes return?

Has the wiring been tested?

Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I disconnected the battery for about 10 minutes. I took the car on the parkway and when I got home check the codes and they came back. They only thing that happens with the car is when I’m driving about 60 mph the rpms jump a little.
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I won’t be able to test the wires till tomorrow
Transmission Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 24 days ago

If all of these codes are actively setting then you either have four seprate issues or the TCM has failed. The first thing you'll want to do is test the control circuits for continuity between the TCM and trans and test them for a short to power or ground.
