I had trans failsafe due to failing battery. The battery did start the car just fine.. Battery resting voltage was ~12V, when it should be 12.4V+. Replaced the battery and haven't had issue since. These cars are really sensitive to electrical issues, so first check the alternator & battery.

What kind of scanner did you use? Which diagnostic port?
