Default Smg pump failure please help

Hello all and thank you for taking your time to read my post, recently I was driving and hit a large pot hole on the right side of my car, it was a pretty hard hit but didn't damage my wheel, but it still was a frightening hit, I checked my car and continued to drive, 10 minutes later I continued to drive and came to a stop at a stop sign, the car was in second gear and dropped to first gear, as soon as it dropped to first gear I heard a weird almost popping sound and my smg indicator light turned on( car was on automatic mode), as i continued to drive I realized the car was stuck in first gear and yes I heard a whirling sound, I was able to put the car in neutral and reverse with no issues but nothing above 1 gear. I then turned the car off and for 20 minutes and when I turned it back on everything was fine nO smg lights or anything. The car did seem to sluggishly change gears, but I'm not sure if this was my imagination or if it was actually the case. When I turn the car on now there are still no lights and everything is fine. It is a 2002 m3 with only 23k miles, also the weather was very cold around 30 degrees. The smg indicator light has come on around a month ago without issue and shut off 5 minutes after, the smg fluid is also at an appropriate level

When the light turned on it likely stored a code. Even though its off now. If you can read that code to start.
