The P0700 code is a request for the MIL, (check engine light) to come on. The P0705 would be the reason for the request. That code is for the transaxle range position sensor, (PRNDL input)
That is probably a bad TR sensor, (trans range sensor) however, here is the test for it.
DTC P0705: Transaxle Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction (PRNDL Input)
Circuit Description The Transaxle range switch is located on the selector shaft and informs the TCM of the current selector lever position P-R-N-D-3-2-1. The selector lever position is transmitted to the TCM in encoded form along 4 lines. The encoding is such that malfunctions in the connecting lead are identified. The TR switch is located on the selector shaft, which is connected to the selector lever via a pull cable. In addition, the TR switch controls the starter interlock, the reverse lights and the selector lever position indicator on the instrument panel.
Diagnostic Aids When DTC P0705 sets, the possible cause is TR switch.
