Possible CVT Issue P0961

My '06 FS had been running a little funny. It felt like a rear differential issue. Recently the check engine came on and I pulled a code P0961. From the forum it looks like this code usually comes with a handful of others. Pressure control solenoid A is what the designation seems to be.
I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with this? My mechanic seems to think that it isn't a differential issue but rather related to the CVT. Is it possible that replacing the solenoid could fix the issue? I'm also overdue for a CVT fluid drain and fill.
Thanks for any support.

Looks like this viewtopic.php?t=6015 is the route I'm taking. Hopefully the new DEM works out and fixes the issues. I'll post how it works out.

I am not a mechanic, but it seems to me that you have chosen the wrong way. I would try to replace the solenoid A (or clean), check the seals, replace cvt filters
