Transmission Cog light, and DSC

My Pipe that goes to the water pump and onto the reservoir gave out on me last week, I took out the whole intake manifold witch was a HUGE deal to do, and i replaced it.

I put everything back together or so i think i did, because now after starting up the car i get the orange cog light, and the DSC triangle.
Any one know if there are connection under the manifold that i might have not plugged that are related to the lights im getting.

Also, I broke the Check Valve that's connected to the hose that goes to the power booster i replaced it with another one that is just for air, it doesn't block the air from going back, and i dont know if that piece is suppose to do something special aside from passing air. Any help would be very much appreciated

So i took of the whole intake manifold off again to see if a connection had been missed to connect, i saw nothing so i put it back again, i looked around the internet and i narrowed it down to 3 solutions/problems.

1.Bad Harness connection

2.Bad TCU

3.Re programing of the main computer

which could be maybe #2, since i took out the Fuse pack in the E-Fuse Box next to the power booster and one fuse was burnt.

after replacing it and started up the car the Transmission Gear was no longer the "P" was visible again there but Yellow Circle in the middle was still on.

And shortly after the fuse in the fuse pack burnt again and the Transmission Gear symbol re appeared.

Maybe a connection is switched?

Solution Found!

Turns out that some of the cables that are next to the firewall next to the valve cover got some heat of the exhaust manifold and got stuck togeather, i was able to seperate them and patch them up.

Man i swear its always something simple with these cars you just gotta look for it. i accidentally noticed the cable when i was replacing my valve gasket, i got lucky i was about to order a DME
