It's a Transmission Sensor Part is like $75 I went to the parts department got 20% off on the part and then drove it to the dealer Quick lane and paid for a transmission fluid change including dropping the pan which was like $175 I then handed them the sensor and asked them if they would change it while the pan was off they gladly did,,,Light mmediately went out has never come back on,,
