I had the same exact code a few months ago. I will buy a new relay and get it installed. Hopefully this will do the trick!

My Ride: BMW M3 (E46)
I have a 2003 E46 M3. Just recently have the same problem. SMG Transmission light comes on and off then on again. Same code P1717. Brought it to the dealer. They ask me to replace 3 parts. SMG Reply ($15), Hyraulic Unit ($2,400), Program module ($1,000+), Labor ($1,020) = Total about $ 4,500 worth! I took my car back without doing any of the work. My feeling is that they don't know exactly what's wrong with it. I'm going to buy a SMG reply and test it out. Hope that helps!
