Is my transmission dead?

Bought my 16 year old a 2002 kia spectra. His engine light came on and he didn't tell me until 3 days later when the car wouldn't move. He had run out of transmission fluid. Now that we refilled it we have no drive. Low 2 works and you can switch over to drive once you pick up speed. We have 3 codes. PO741, P1529, and PO732. Any ideas? I'm a single mother with 3 teenage drivers and really can't afford to go to a transmission shop.

moved to the right section.

Well, it is likely the transmission is damaged.
How much the fluid did you add? Who added the ATF?

Also, what is the colour of the fluid now?

3 quarts only? If the tranny was empty it should have taken more than that.
Capacity is around 7-9.

P1529 KIA
Possible causes

Drain refill fluid, maybe will help...
Eventually do fluid flush.
If does not help - tranny rebuild as I doubt this is electrical issue (such as connectors loose or swapped)
