Park/Neutral Position Switch
Park/Neutral Position (PNP) switch may also be referred to as Transmission Range (TR) switch. TR and PNP and back-up switches are all combined in one assembly.

The Park/Neutral Position (PNP) switch is connected to transmission gear selector. PNP switch signals PCM when transmission is in Park, Neutral or Drive.
Try and place shifter in (N)position

possible bad switch or out of adjustment
