Here is the procedure:

1. Run car and set trans to neutral.
2. Turn off and wait 15 seconds.
3. Shift to Park.
4. Turn ignition on (Not running), wait 15 seconds
5. Turn to off, then ignition on (not running)
6. Shift to neutral (you may have to press the brake to do so)

If successful you should see "Transmission Ready" on your dash.

That's it. Works for me and is more convenient that doing a stop and go scrub. Good luck

I tried this on my 2017 SEL and it worked, instead of "Transmission Ready" I saw a window that said Transmission and a progress bar going across the bottom until it finished and the message disappeared.

I can't say that Ive noticed any difference but I didn't have any big issues prior to resetting the transmission. I was going to "scrub" the clutches on my way to my Parents farm so I thought I would reset the Transmission at the same time.
