GM has determined that the tan wire to the torque converter clutch solenoid valve may be routed around a metal clip cause check engine light onthe wire to chafe and short to ground. That can cause all the trouble codes as well as harsh shifting due to high line pressure. If you find a chafe on this wire, do not attempt to splice it. Replace it with an updated harness. Make sure you route the new harness outside of the metal clip.
