Default strange syptoms for code p0705

hey guys i'm new to the community hoping maybe someone might have an idea of what's going on..
okay so I have a 2002 ford ranger edge cab and a half 4x4 4.0 v6.. everything has been great I went out of town and on the way back my truck started running strange . the engine shakes, its not a light shake the entire steering coulomb rattles along with the cab. the next day the check engine light came on so I went and had it read and the code p0705 came up witch is the "transmission range sensor circuit malfunction (prndl input)"
I thought this was strange because it feels more like a fuel problem the truck is running bad during idle and when in gear and moving it feels under powered .. I ran seafoam trough the tank changed spark plugs in hopes it might help with the rough running . I don't want to spend 250S on a new tmc when it doesn't seem like its the problem. any ideas?

additional notes .. truck shifts fine no problems going in and out of gear..

Strange question but do your reverse lights come on when in reverse?

Your connection may need to be cleaned. It is located on the side of the transmission by the ges r selector cable.
