Trouble code P0700 and P0710

Anyone know whats up with P0700 (Trans control system malfunction) and P0710 (Transmission fluid temperature sensor circuit malfunction). Any idea what thats about?
There is some mild knocking. Its a 2003 325i with 52000 miles. I did just change the oil last week? Checked the transmission fluid, that seems fine, nice and red.

Thanks

I used BMW oil 5w30 and filter from the dealer. I turned the check engine light off and it has not come back on in 2 days?

Thanks
I am thinking you checked the power steering fluid resevoir, unless you got under the vehicle and removed the fill plug and stuck your finger in there.

You are correct. I just checked the power steering fluid. My mistake. Do you know where the transmission fluid temperature sensor is on the E46. Thanks
