Ok, there is an adjustment procedure for the shift cable. Labor time for floor mounted shifter is 1 hour and for steering column mounted shifter is 1.5 hours.
While this is possibly the issue, it could also be one of the shift solenoids in the transmission solenoid pack, which would be 2 hours labor and about $210 for the solenoid pack assembly.
The problem with not taking care of the issue causing the check engine light to be on is that when another issue occurs such as the shift solenoids, you never know because the light is already on and one tends to get use to it and assume it is for the original problem and not that a separate issue may be illuminating the check engine light as well.
Because of this, before having the shift cable adjusting, I strongly recommend having the onboard computers scanned for fault codes as there could be a fault code stored for the shift solenoids, thus indicating the problem is the solenoid pack assembly and not a shift cable adjustment needed. This could save you from an unnecessary repair
