I had the exact same problem with my Scion which is also an 2008 Automatic Scion xD. The code read something was wrong with my transmission, and I was not able to go into 4th gear which was using my gas faster. Wires to the code reader had been chewed by rodents (rabbit or squirrel probably). It was hard to find but a simple fix. Be careful because some auto mechanics might sell you a new transmision for this.

Thanks for the reply and believe it or not, it was the exact problem you described. However, when I first took it to the Milford, CT Toyota/Scion dealer, they never mentioned the rodent/mice issue. There was debris left by the critter and the wires had been chewed through. The Aamco transmission place never mentioned this either and told me it might cost up to $4,000 to repair. My son finally took it took a local mechanic near his job who did checked it out and told him the real problem. I thought honesty was something that you could take to the bank with Aamco or even the dealer. No such thing. Thanks again for the information.

Its of dude not if you idiot, and that clutch should last 150k. Additionally scion clutch assemblies arent very good because mine sometimes will not shift or get hung up in between gears for no reason at 30k
