That is an O2 sensor code. It could be a bad sensor, shorted lead, a ground problem, or an issue with the PCM, like a corroded or loose connector or damaged wiring.

What kind of scantool are you using?

Start by checking the transmission fluid level using the procedure outlined in the Factory Service Manual. You may also want to consider a fluid/filter change so you can inspect the contents of the pan, especially if it hasn't been serviced for a while. To check for transmission codes, you'll need a scantool that has the capability to check transmission codes....not all scanners can do it.
