Question Check Engine Light, OBD II code P1706

Hey guys/girls I have a question and if anyone knows the aswer to this question I would really appreciate it. The Check Engine Light came on, and a friend of mine looked at it who owns a OBDII, and I got code P1706, and I have looked around and came up with this (P1706 Open in Transmission Range Switch Circuit) is this correct? and what does it mean? how much is it gonna cost me to get it fixed? (I don't want to go to a mechanic or a deal to give me a huge bill, I want to go to them knowing what needs to be fixed and also have an estimate) I own a 2002 Honda Civic EX Coupe automatic that has close to 40 miles on it, and I have noticed one thing since the Check Engine Light came on when the gears are changing from 2 to 3 or 4 it doesn't do it smoothly, I could use all the help I can get thanks a lot guys/girls

you might have to replace the transmission range switch, or have a short in the wiring. or maybe it's a goof, and nothing is permanently wrong.

remove the #6 fuse for 10 seconds, and replace. drive to 37mph in D and stop. shut the car off. start it up. do the same thing (drive to 37 and then stop) and see if the light comes back on and it does the rough shifting stuff.

if so, you probably need to replace the switch. lots of electrical tests needed, blah blah blah.

this is an abbreviated version of what the helms manual says.
