We need to walk through a few things. What is the state of your transmission fluid. In good condition the fluid should a vibrant pink and be clear. The smell should be a pleasant almost fragrant light oil. If your fluid is brown and/opaque then this indicative of wear. The smell is an unpleasant over-cooked burnt aroma. The brown colour is from the band clutches slipping and the friction wears the lining down and overheats the material - brown and burnt basically. If the fluid is opaque filter some of it through a kitchen paper towel. If there is grey sludge this is likely to be aluminium alloy. Pass a magnet over the sludge paste, if particles cling to the magnet these are flakes of steel. If you remove the bottom tray to the gear box the frst thing you see is the underside of the metal filter. If you remove this you can see the sort of material trapped in it. If it is just over cooked fluid then a filter and fluid change would be good place to start. If there is particulate sludge this is an indication of imminent failure. You do not mention the code specifically. If it is a selector solenoid then this can be replaced without the huge expense of a new transmission. In the old days a mechanic would know what the the fault was and try to repair the part. Subsequently this has given way to just replacing the part, then to a strategy of replacing parts until it works, to finally a situation of lets replace the whole assembly!
