Need Help with SMG

Hello Everyone.

I have a problem with my SMG. A few months ago, the transmission malfunction light came on, and went away after i turned the car off, and i had no problems shifting.

No problems ever since until 3 days ago, the transmission light came back on, along with the check engine light with a code 1717, which is transmission malfunction. It kicked itself out of gears a couple of times, but it shifted fine, without any problems when it was in gear. I searched the forum and Yesterday, i replaced the Salmon colored relay, and it ran fine all morning, until now when the transmission light and the check engine light came back on, and started kicking itself out of gear more often, but when it is ingear, it shift fine without any hesitation or anything. I searched and read different threads, and i'm not sure what my next step is. The pump primes fine when the car is opened with the keyless. is there a way to test the pump? what should i do now? Any help would be appreciated

EDIT: When its kicked out of gear, it gets back into gear within 5 or 6 seconds.
