My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. If the transmission is suddenly acting up like this and giving you this code then you may have gotten a defective transmission, or most of the time this is either related to the wiring or a control module problem. If you are getting the same solenoid code even after a new solenoid, I would diagnose the circuit. If it is fine then the control module will need to be replaced. This type of issue is best left to a transmission specialist to fix. If you need help diagnosing the problem, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to check why the car doesn’t speed up when the pedal is pressed and make the necessary repairs.
