The SES light was on when I started the car up. I warmed it to operating temperature and drove to my girlfirends. My trans didn't seem to be kicking down correctly last night. I really had to step on the gas to get it to kick down.
Last weekend I put in a hlf quart of fluid. While I was doing that i noticed the cable going from the trans (the one with the red button on it) attached to the throttle body was very lose. Could this be the problem?
Also could the any issues with the trans cause the SES light to come on?

You mean the trans dipstick wasn't completely locked down? Might throw a code for low line pressure or something maybe, don't know for sure. If it just came on it's probably something else, other things wrong can affect shifts - you can also get an SES light for the trans itself for like a bad/stuck solenoid or something - I'd get the code read as soon as possible.

The throttle-valve boosts transmission line pressure in accordance with the throttle position. Too little pressure + too much throttle = slipping clutches + heat = time to overhaul transmission.

Haha, ok no we don't have a t valve, that's electronically controlled.
