a bad NSS will cause all of that. Install a new one or clean the old one

why would you go through the work to bypass the sensor switch and compromise the original design/safety intent when the job to clean it and restore the functionality is much easier? You do realize by doing that permanently you have no reverse lights as well right?

Anyways, BigBrian here is a writeup on how to PROPERLY fix your issue:

you can, but the jeep wont like it much. messes up shift points, sets off a CEL and kills the cruise control. i wouldn't do it unless your stuck out in the middle of nowhere and choices are limited.

hmm, I seem to have no nss, I can start in gear (manual), my reverse lights work and no CEL I wonder what those monkeys at the university of texas el paso did to it before I bought it. I know they can't bolt in a transmission.

^ This. Be very gentle with it and hopefully you can be done in ~2 hrs.
