If it is exactly the same as before, although it is related to the range sensor, it sounds more likely the result of a wiring or connector issue. There is a reset procedure for clearing faults related to the PRNDL system, but it requires a scan tool that can communicate with the PCM.
I attached the directions below if you want to try them. I don't know if you have a scan tool that can do this, so let me know about that.
The noise you described I've heard in many of these vehicles, but not hearing your vehicle, I can't confirm.
By any chance, were there diagnostic trouble codes related to the issues before the repair? Also, have you had the computer scanned since the problem started again? Also, is it possible for you to check the connector at the range sensor to make sure it's tight, clean, has no corrosion, and nothing is damaged where it connects? Pic 2 below shows the sensor/location.
Let me know. Also, let me know if you have codes that may help.
See pics below.
