My car has 61000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This trouble code relates to an issue with the pressure solenoid inside the transmission. It is possible that a faulty powertrain control module could be the cause of this issue but more likely that the pressure solenoid has failed. I would recommend having your transmission inspected by a qualified transmission specialist to determine the exact cause of this issue.
