Your Nissan Primera has an on-board diagnostic computer which can detect malfunctions in either engine or transmission.
When the Engine Management light remains lit, this means some faults are present and need investigating.
From what you've described, one of the issues is indeed related to the transmission, but you will need to have the trouble codes (DTC's) extracted from your vehicle's computer, in order to determine what requires repair.
Whenever power is disconnected (i.e. the battery) and re-connected, this resets your vehicle's computer momentarily, until such time as it detects the fault again.
Recommend you either have your local dealer extract the codes (for a small 15min labor fee), or learn to extract the codes yourself, using a suitable jumper wire.

The trans. will have a drain plug on the bottom of case and a fill plug about halfway up on one side of the case. Usually a large socket needed for this, like about 21 mm.
You need to check the owner's manual or with Nissan to see what kind and amount of fluid to use, whether gear oil or what. If it's gear oil, you snip the top of the cap off and use a small hose (like a vacuum hose) over the cap. squeeze the bottle to dispense through the hose into the gearbox. If that is inconvenient or difficult, you might need a cheap hand held plunger type pump.
You fill the box just until fluid starts to ooze out the fil hole. Then put the plug in and done.
you will have to loosen the center nut that is located on the front hub while the care is still down on the ground to make it easy to undo then jack the car up and put it on a car stand then loosen the 6 locating nuts and bolts on the gearbox flange if it dosent have the bolts and flange it requires to use 2 leavers on both sides of the iner c v joint and pop the c v out before you try to pop the c v out you must undo the bottom lower control arm so that you can move it free if you dont undo control arm it will keep the c v sold against the fron wheel hub
