Default Need help with tranny

I am at a loss! I have a 2001 ram 4x4 5.9 150,000 mi, I recently replaced the solenoids, governor pressure sensor, filter and gasket because of shifting problems. Everything went well and the truck is shifting perfectly, even OD. My problem now is the trans temp light comes on after about 10 miles or so. The fluid is full, not towing anything, factory ext cooler. I am using atf+4 advance auto brand. I am not sure if I put something back together wrong when I pulled valve body or not, but except for the temp the trans is shifting, downshifting, OD is working like it should. Don't feel any obvious slipping. Please give me some ideas tranny gurus. I am not sure if there is another posting on this but didn't have time to search them all. I can't believe it is a major issue because all seems well. I have never had a problem with temp light before i screwed with it.

Do you know if it is actually running hot or if the light is just coming on for no reason? There is a member here "transengineer" he should be able to help you out.
