Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Before we begin can you tell me if the vehicle is running fine even with the light on?
Can you clarify if the transmission codes were p0706 or p1706?
Thanks. Unless you got a defective part, you probably have a circuit issue. You may have some corrosion in the wiring causing high resistance. Did you have a voltage meter to run some tests?
If the car is running fine then the problem has to be minute such as a poor signal from resistance in the wiring. I am also assuming it shows the right gear when the shifter is moved. If it is running fine I do not see it causing any future issues.
You would typically see those indicators not show the right position or it could start to affect the starting of the car.
Yes. Most of the time there is a leak on the top of the tank but the smoke test is the best way to verify this.
