Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

This code is for the low/reverse solenoid control circuit. Possible causes are the trans controller (not likely), the solenoid itself and it's wiring. It would take some testing at the time the problem is happening to know exactly what is going on if no problems could be found visually with wiring and connections, but odds are the solenoid is the issue. Replacing the solenoid would run approximately $200.

The low/reverse solenoid control wire is in pin 5 of trans controller connector B55. This is the flatter gray connector with three rows of terminals. Facing the terminal end of the connector pin 5 is in the top row and fifth from the left side. You want to check this wire for a short to power or ground as well as continuity from the TCM to the solenoid while the code is active.

Unfortunately I don't have a part number for the solenoid, I would recommend having a dealer or the aftermarket supplier verify the part number by VIN.

Your answer at the start "Replacing the solenoid would run approximately $200."Please, Can you asking dealer or the aftermarket supplier for the solenoid?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 8 months ago.

If you want to do the work yourself I would recommend seeing your dealer's parts department with your VIN and ordering the solenoid.

In Slovakia(and Czech Republika too) can't ordering only one solenoid from Subaru dealers.
Some Cars of Nissan have transmission called RE5R05A (350z, Pathfinder,....) which using same solenoids as subaru 5eat transmission. Nissan dealers(In Slovakia and Czech Republic) can't ordering only one solenoid, but only completly valve body :-/
