SOURCE: TRANSMISSION PROBLEM
You have a shift solenoid problem, it will probably have to be replaced, it will require taking off the transmission oil pan (draining trans oil), I recommend that you leave this task to a repair shop, it is a little tricky to do and it is very important that the inside of the transmission stays very clean. I hope this helps you, please let me know

Your going to have to bring it in to a transmission shop and sorry could not help you with any other recommendation with the lack of information to your car's year and engine size, or the DTC codes. Good luck and hope it's just a transmission line pressure solenoid that when bad.

Most transmission solenoids are located within the pan. If you replace the solenoids then it would be a good idea to change out the wiring harness that runs from the main transmission plug to the solenoids. Just lower the pan and drain it. Then, remove the one or two bolts that hold the solenoids in place. Replace the solenoids, wires, transmission filter and fluid at the same time (since you're already there). Make sure that you use a new pan gasket when you put the pan back on or it will leak fluid. Good Luck!

USUALLY A SHIFT SOLENOID DTC IS REPAIRED BY REPLACING THE TRANS SOLENOID PACK ASSEMBLY..LOCATED ON OUTSIDE OF TRANSMISSION..YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WHEN CHANGING PACK..CLEAN ALL DIRT/DEBRIS FROM OUTSIDE OF PACK..YOU DON'T WANT ANY DIRT TO ENTER TRANSMISSION..SOLENOID IS A SMALL BOX LOCATED ON SIDE OF TRANS FACING FRONT OF VEHICLE..YOU MUST REMOVE TRANS COOLER LINE HOSES FROM FITTINGS ON TRANS..REMOVE INPUT SPEED SENSOR..UNPLUG PACK..8MM SCREW HOLDS IT..3 BOLTS HOLD PACK TO TRANS..YOU MUST CLEAN ALL GASKET RESIDUE THOROUGHLY BEFORE INSTALLING PACK..I'D RECOMMEND GETTING SOMEONE WHO HAS DONE THIS BEFORE IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE DOING THIS..I HOPE THIS HELPS

It's a safety feature. For example, if there is no oil pressure when you start the engine, you could not see that unless you were in the car and could spin a bearing or seize the engine by starting it remotely and letting it run unattended. So when the check engine light is on, there is something not working properly with the engine/engine management system and it wants you in the car where you can see the guages and turn the engine off immediately if there's a serious problem.
