Honestly, there are any of about 150 different things it means. It could be a sensor or module, it could also indicate a problem with the transmission computer components. 95% of these items are emissions related and will affect gas mileage, if not driveability, but a few are directly related to driveability to the point that the car will perform BADLY if they are not working. Best to have the codes scanned and find out.
