The first time the vehicle is started, the Transmission Control Module (TCM) receives hydraulic calibration data from an external EEPROM (located in the transmission) and stores this information in the EEPROM of the TCM. If the TCM can not read the external EEPROM in the transmission this DTC will set. It takes two consecutive failures to turn on the MIL.
