Depending on the manufacturer use of the code, it is mostly used for a failed overdrive clutch solenoid.
The wiring or connection to the overdrive clutch solenoid is intermittent or loose.
Scans for codes and documents them in the ECM then looks at the freeze frame data for failure
Turns the overdrive clutch solenoid on and off while driving using the appropriate scanner
Tests the overdrive solenoid wiring and connector for shorted or corroded connectors and wiring
Replaces the overdrive solenoid and road tests after clearing the codes.
Clearing ECM memory codes before checking the freeze frame data for the main failure problem, so that the failure may be duplicated and repaired.
Replacing the overdrive solenoid before checking the wiring connector for corrosion or loose pins.
