    This is a farely easy part to replace and becoming a common problem with these cars,esspecially if your splash gards are missing from underneath your car,water and it doesnt take much over time gets into the swicth and causes connection inside to take place,replacing this part will take care of the problem.Exspect to pay around 300.00 Atleast,or if you can locate this part and bring it with you,that might help the pocket book good luck

    Hi. Thanks for helping me out. I bought a code reader today and it gives P0705 - Transmission Range Sensor A Circuit (PRNDL) Input. Do you know if this is difficult to replace or about how much I should expect to spend when I take it in? Thanks again so much. Virginia.
