Default 1999 Honda Accord Transmission problem (codes P0700 & P1705)?

As you can see from the title, I have a 1999 Honda Accord and just the other night the emergency light came on and the light around the D4 gear started to blink instead of being a solid light. I pulled over and went through the gears and the transmission seemed to be shifting harder into gear especially in reverse. I ran my code reader when I got home and two codes popped up: P0700 & P1705. From what I understand is that the P0700 is just a code that the Transmission Control Module has sent to Powertrain Control Module. I got this definition for the P1705 code: 1. A/T gear multi position. 2. A/T range switch gear position short. 3. Transmission range switch circuit short. I did a search on google and from what I've been reading it sounds like it is the neutral safety switch/back-up light switch. I was wondering if anyone could conform this or give me any suggestions on what it actually might be. Any information and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

P0700: Transmission Control System

P1705: Short in Transmission Range Switch (TRS) Circuit. It is an electronic part and they do fail. I don't think it's a more common failure than most. It's not that expensive to replace. About $135.00 for the part and an hours labor to install it.
