PNP Switch

So my SES light came on the other day so I pulled out the trusty OBD II reader and got the fault code P1706 indicating a poor Park/Nuetral Positioning Switch.

Has anyone replaced a PNP Switch? If so (or not), what would you feel the importance of replacing the switch is? Kind of a part out of my comfort zone here, so I would love any input. Thanks fellas!

My guess is if the PNP switch goes go out completely, the starter may not engage because of the not reading if it's in gear or not

Yea, I reset the code and I haven't had any REAL problems at all. And I would assume if it was out completely it wouldn't know the gear and not be able to start, but it's not at that point. So maybe for now I'll just keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for the quick input!
