TQ95 is out dated, Most brands now have a synthetic fluid for the BTR

Dex 3 can only be used on the 3 speeds, NOT the BTR 4 speeds. Use 95LE, as Troyman said. When I flushed mine I used 95LE, a lot of the Dex 3 bottles on them said "not for BTR gearboxes" or something similar.

Edit: I used some kind of TQ95 equivalent - definitely NOT dex 3.
