When plan A fails, it is better to go to plan B rather than hoping plan A is going to work out.

Since you are getting the dealer to do the job, get them to check and verify if replacement is necessary. Who knows an adjustment might be all it needs.

Ok so here is the latest update. I went in today to get the RIGHT part installed. They did it VERY fast. Cleared the code, told me to drive it around for a bit and come back. If I were uncooth, I would have just not returned. However, I am too honest for my own good at times.
The service engine light eventually tripped and it still does the SAME THING lol but at least it does not need to be in neutral anymore to start it. BUT it does not act the same either. Since I have had it back, it has trouble going into gears. Twice already I put it in park only to find it rolling backward. Then back in gear back to park fixed it but WTF, it never did that before.

I went back and told him im not gonna pay him anymore labor, I pay for the part cuz the old one was physically damaged (between you and me, I think they broke it removing it) and that if they wanted any more money from me, they need to talk to my lawyer. I am ready to go to a different shop now.

I am considering AAMACO as you suggested. I am definately sueing these jokers too. I am also gonna try to have their dmv status yanked and anything else I can do to this pathetic shop.

Just wanted to give you an update. Oh and by the way, direct quote from the master mechanic after replacing yet another part that was gonna fix it
"It's still poping the same code so you are gonna need a new tranny."
$1000 dollars to diagnose my tranny! W T F

It is never easy to find an honest mechanic everywhere.

I don't see any reason why code P1705 is recurring after replacement of the switch.

It is not related to the transimssion. Either the switch, its wiring or PCM culd be the cause.

Im starting to lean towards the PCM too. Why would all these same codes keep tripping even after brand new parts installed. Maybe I can go to the junk yard and pull a used PCM and swap? If so do I have to do an exact model PCM or there several that may work?

PCM should be identified by the Part/No and should be exact. Any difference in the P/N might affect performance.

Getting a PCM to test wold be a good idea.
