Hello and Welcome -

My name is ***** ***** Sorry to see you have had a wait-

Indeed - both of the codes you have there are caused by the transmission range sensor on the side of the transmission.

This is easy to install - the sensor.... With the trans in neutral remove the sensor. Now make sure the new sensor is lined up on the N setting on the sensor. Install the sensor and tighten the bolts.

Before any of the above though - do just check the wiring to it for any damage at all or bad connections to the sensor - as either or both will cause the same.

Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
