That's the code for a shorted epc.
If the epc was good, I'd unplug the connector and use an ohmmeter to see which side is shorted, the tranny or the wiring.
It will be shorted to ground, most likely, or to the +V power wire. I don't think the eec can see a short to +, but I'm not sure.
The car side of the wiring is connected to a driver on the eec; so only use a digital ohmmeter, and try not to kill the eec.
Metal from the tranny wear can get into the wiring circuit board, shorting stuff out.
