I have a 2003 t bird. The so called "pesky e problem," is a common problem for the 5R55S transmission built between 11/06/2002 to 2/13/2003. The most notable fix is to either clean or replace the Main Control Valve Body Assembly. The Ford TSB - trouble shooting bulletin - for this problem is #16893 Driveline Other Auto Trans Concerns.

Your battery is located in the trunk of your vehicle.
When the battery is disconnected or a new battery is installed, the
transmission must relearn its shift strategy. As a result, the transmission
may have firm and/or soft shifts. This operation is considered normal and
will not affect function or durability of the transmission. Over time, the
adaptive learning process will fully update transmission operation.
