The transmission codes and functions are often controlled by the ecm, engine control module computer. The ecm stores the fault codes from the engine and transmission. It is telling you that you have a transmission problem, the vehicle must have the ecm scanned by a certified technician, to properly diagnose the problem.
THE INHIBITOR SWITCH TELLS THE ECM THAT THE TRANSMISSION IS IN PARK OR NEUTRAL AND SAFE TO START THE MOTOR SOIT ISNT IN GEAR IT IS ALSO CALLED THE NEUTRAL SAFTEY SWITCH AND IT IS LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION

Check your transmission fluid. If not dirty or low it is either a worn clutch pack or ECM problem.

no ecm needs to be programmed to key fobs and updated

Try to find another 97 1500 and swap to see if problem follows the ecm.
1999-2003 Quest and Villager's ECM is located behind the glove box. You can see the ECM with glove box opened all the way. To access the ECM, remove the bottom right half of the dash. Few screw holds them in place so it is quick and easy.
My ECM on a 1993 Metro just went out and it was similar to what you are experiencing. Mine mimicked fuel system problems, but I took it to a mechanic w/ all of the diagnostic equipment, and he was able to diagnose the faulty ECM. This saved me from unneccessarily replacing fuel system parts, and was well worth the money. I found the ECM for my engine/transmission off of Ebay for $21.00 shipped. You can also get them off of the internet rebuilt for $200.00, and used for $150.00.
Have the Ecm re-programmed for free at dealership

See http://rav4ecm.net It has details on the problem, how to remove the ecm, and where to send to get it fixed.
