This same question was asked on January 14, 2009, but the solution did not appear to address my issue. Car is throwing 3 codes; first code= P1529; second code= P0760; third code is P0755

Trans is in fail safe mode Third Gear. 1529 means MIL light on malfunction in Trans. The 760 and 755 shift solenoids shorted or open. Going to recomend Dealer or Tans specialist NOT a DIY job.
