This is a damaged torque converter and you may have a blown shift solenoid as well. check the fluid level. i suspect major torque converter damage.

P0125 sets when engine coolant temp does not reach temperature for closed loop operation within a set amount of time.
May be a faulty sensor or thermostat.
P0420 Is related to a faulty rear 02sensor.
P1518 PCM & TAC module communication detected missing or invalid serial data.
If TAC related repair has been done, clear DTC & recheck system. It may be necessary to preform clear codes function twice to clear this DTC.
make sure starting system & charging system are functioning properly. Low voltage can cause this DTC to set. This should help. Let me know how its going.

Hey mate, Had exactly the same problem. Suggest you take the car to your local auto transmission repair centre (not holden) and they can check the electrical diagnostics - if it the Transmission inhibitor Switch (as it was on mine - if so should cost you no more than 1 hour labour and about $75 - $95 for the switch.
