This code is for the lock-up torque converter, and shouldn't cause the transmission to not shift, however this code can be a result of another problem, so you will need to have the transmission checked out. Let the shop know that there is a service bulletin that may be related to this fault - here is the info http://repairpal.com/mercury-sable-1999#tsb_6732
