Ok thanks for the update let us know what you did when you do. If you reset yours with your tool I'm buying one the next day. Otherwise I'm going to the dealer.

I changed the transmission fluid this past weekend. You definitely want to have the engine running when refilling it. I also used some spare under hood heat barrier I had to wrap the exhaust which is right next to the fill hole so I wouldn't burn myself.

I followed these procedures:

We have steel bolts on our pan so it's 10Nm for those 13 bolts, 35Nm on the fill plug.

I printed this pic and taped it to the bottom of the pan to make the tightening easy:
