Code: 4E87 (Solenoid valve 4 shift lock)

Every time I start my car I get transmission fault, Gears can be switched with out pressing the break pedal. I run my scan tool and I see two codes in the transmission DTC, first one is 4E87 and the second one is CF2A (No message from szm) when I cleared the codes only 4E87 will not clear. and the Red color gear on display is now yellow. But I am still able to shift the gears without pressing the break pedal, When the engine is off, the gearshift is locked but as soon as I start the car the solenoid is unlocked. Any input on this will be much appreciated.
