Hi there. The code you were given is a Honda / Acura specific OBD-II trouble code. It can be caused by Low transmission fluid level, dirty transmission fluid, torque converter clutch solenoid harness is open or shorted or a faulty torque converter clutch solenoid. Due to the multiple sources of this issue, providing you an estimate is very difficult. Since you have no symptoms beyond the warning light and trouble code, it would be best to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a warning light inspection to help pinpoint the source of this problem.
