That is your 3 and 4 shift solenoid in the transmission. it is stuck open and needs to be replace. it is very easy to do.

i ve run into this problem a few times,with no cler results,i checked all wiring from computer to switch and all check out fine i also replaced switch and a month later same code,this one ended up with a bad pcm, another one had a bad wiring for overdrive switch, this was not an easy repair to diagnose.i think you should have amazda dealer look at it.
