It means the transmission fluid was too hot, or the sensor that reads the transmission fluid temperature isn't working properly. Simple as that.

Were you driving the vehicle hard? Was it hot outside? Did it happen straight away, or after driving a while? All of these things could help pinpoint whether the message was accurate or not.

Check fluid quality and level.

When was the last time you had it serviced? As transmission fluid gets older, its ability to dissipate heat is reduced.
