Transaxle code P0742 says the TCC release switch circuit was closed (indicating the TCC was applied) while the TCC was commanded off. The problem could be electrical like a short in the circuit or mechanical like a faulty TFP valve position switch, sediment in the valve body, faulty TCC mechanism, etc. Check the fluid level if you can and, if not that, take it in for service.
