If you did not reset the fluid counter after you put in fresh fluid, the "brain" does not know anything about it. Given there is no apparent reduction in performance, there is a chance that the "Trans Service Required" message may be just a 'false positive'
you have the vida/dice setup and you have not reset the fluid counter yet, you are a bad boy spank yourself LOL
After you refresh the fluid, go to the TCM advanced tab in vida(with dice attached). There, you reset the fluid counter, erase all the tranny adaptives(to start fresh), then put the tranny in adaptive mode and drive away making sure the tranny shihts smoothly between gears.
