ACURA TL TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

Transmission problem
2000 Acura TL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles

Hi Bob and Ken,

My 2000 Acura TL has an automatic transmission that features sport shift mode. Its problems are engine and TCS lights on, and SRS light on too.
After engine starting for about 5 seconds the D5 of transmission light starts to blink and simultaneously the TCS (traction control system) light comes. But, if I switched the transmission from auto to sport shift mode before the 5 seconds after the car started then the D5 does not flash, and TCS is off also. And when I took it to DEQ station, it failed the MIL (malfunction indicator light) test with a P1709 code. Would you please diagnose what is the problem with my car and what should I do to fix it? Thank you.
