P0705 code

Hello to all. So I have a little problem. I started my 2010 rav4 v6 limited today and 3 lights came on the dashboard. The check engine light, the 4 wheel drive light and the vsc light. Earlier in the day I noticed the when shifting from park to drive the shift wasn't smooth, it was a harsh. Once in gear it seems to shift normaly. Went to auto parts store and had them read the codes and it was P0705 transmission sensor A-circuit. Car has 64000 miles on it. Any help with this would be appreciated.

You very likely need that sensor replaced. I don't know if it's a DIY job but if not I check around for estimates.

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

One of the problems is I'm not sure what sensor it is. Is it the park/neutral position switch? From what I understand the(PNP) switch also has the Transmission Range Switch in it. And where might this switch be?

The sensor is probably inside the transmission.

Thanks Dr. Dyno. My biggest concern is the harsh shift from park to drive. Almost sounds like a solenoid and a valve. Have to do a little more research.
