The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

From what you have described it sounds like the transmission control solenoid pack is hanging up and needs to be replaced.
When you shut the car off it resets the position of the soleniod allowing it to work for a while before it gets hung up again.
Overtime turning it off and back on again won't anymore.
Are you sure the solenoids were new and installed correctly?
Sometimes the replacments you buy are of a worse quality. Their probably is another issue causing your soleniods to wear faster than they are supposed to and when you install inferior quality replacments they may just wear out quicker. I'm not saying this your problem just an idea.
If you haven't changed the fluid and filter in a while then that definetly would be the next thing I would do before anything else.
You can check your fluid to see if its dark and smells burned or if its clean and lighter colored.
I really hope this gets you headed in the right direction and good luck.
If you feel I've helped in any way please give me a fixya rating,

The code points to a 02 sensor no responce. It may be dead. Testing can confirm this. If the car has a broken wire or an 02 sensor fuse this also could be the issue.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
