2004 545i Electrical Issues

Wondering if anyone has seen this problem and possible solution:
Car starts from cold fine. 10 minutes into the drive, Transmission Failsafe Error appears.
Turning car on and off within 1 - 2 hours does not remove error.
Turned car off for 4 - 8 hours and the problem disappears, however, 10 minutes into the drive, the Transmission Failsafe Error reappears.
Dealer wants to replace transmission, but not convinced this is some unrelated electrical isssue.
