I've got a 2004 Toyota Corolla S that keeps throwing a check engine light and storing the code P2716. I know the code is for the pressue control solenoid however in my troubleshooting I've confirmed that the light and code are thrown only when making a left turn from a stop. I've flushed the transmission and refilled with brand new fluid. I've driven the car over 30 miles since the flush and I've cleared the light and code multiple times after each time it was set to verify that it only got stored when making a left turn. I've tried to see the light turns on when driving straight, from a stop, or turning right and it never turns on, however as soon as I turn left it does. I've checked the fluid on the transmission dipstick and verified that I have enough transmission fluid. I'm not sure what could be causing the light and code to be stored when turning left. Can someone here help me figure out this issue?

That car has a lot of miles. You may have a harness issue that happens on a left turn. Also possible that worn internal transmission parts let a trigger wheel move too far away from a sensor during a left turn. I'm not a transmission expert, so I would be looking for a harness problem.
