DOWNSHIFTING TO 3RD GEAR

2002 Kia Optima

Transmission problem
2002 Kia Optima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles

I own a 2002 Kia Optima w/2.7v6 & auto transmission. My check engine light goes on and the transmission drops down into 3rd gear and stays there until I turn the car off.
My OBDII code reader gives me a 1529 code. I can not find any information about this number.
The code stays in until my code reader reset when it flashed the number 3 times, or after the car has been turned off and on several times.
I found information about code P9715 that describes what is happening to my Kia, but this is not the code I get.
Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
