Sometimes I travel a long way after parking and turn on again to back home check transmission light on and cannot change gear it only stuck on 5th. I'm back home with check transmission light on and parked it for one day then try to turn on it again its work normally and no error no check transmission. So, what happened?

It sounds like the TCM is going out or the input shaft speed sensor is not working correctly. For this problem you can get a CAN scanner from Amazon for about $30.00 here is a video to show you how. This can tell more of what's going on than a regular code reader.

Here is a scanner link:

Here are the instructions on how to replace the TCM and input shaft speed sensor in case this is what comes up in the diagrams below. Also, I have included the transmission wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works. Also, because the TCM is mounted with the electrical connector pointing upwards I have seen water get into the connector causing corrosion which can cause all kinds of issues. Remove the connector to check.

Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

We like to keep all conversations on the site so others can benefit from it. The code P1C9D is for the Gear Shift Position Sensor which is in the shift lever. Here is the location so you can check out the connections and connector. Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

The sensor is attached to the gear shifter itself.

It is hard to say from the picture the part would need to be removed and matched up, also the switch problem could be intermittent or had a dirty contact and will be okay now. Sometime dirt or dust can get down inside switch and cause an intermitted problem.

Pro I travelled again today 150 km then take rest two hours one the way to back home after 60 km checked transmission soci stopped and disconnected the battery then connect it after 10 minutes but appear a lot of error like hand brake and traction system so I feel its battery issue.
After I arrived at home I re-disconnected and connected the battery. Everything is good and no check transmission!

What is your opinion?

You are resetting the system when the battery is disconnected so it must be a soft code and a intermittent error. You can try spraying contact cleaner inside the switch to see if that helps.

Which switch do you mean?
I measured the battery and alternator all is okay today.
Can I clean the wiring harness of valve body by electric cleaner?

Three mechanics opinions were to replace the valve body (hydraulic shift actuator), but I can't because it cost more than $2,000.00 and I can't spend this money on the car to repair and maybe it get new errors again.

Update: mechanic told me its 2-4 gear sensor position so I need full hydraulic shift actuator or replace the valve body conductor plate.

Full hydraulic shift was so expensive $2,100.00.

Can you tell me how can I get a new conductor plate? From where can I buy it it's part inside valve.

I would try Ebay and if not, it will be from the dealer. Here is what the manual says about the conductor plate. Diagrams below.
