Question about Mazda MPV
Thereare 5 possible causes for this condition.
TR switch malfunction
TR switch adjustment
Open TR switch ( it failed)
Damaged connectors or wiring
If the technician did his job he eliminated some of the options.
With that you now need to follow his advise and start replacing the first thing he suggested. There are no other options other than putting the car in another shop and paying for a second opinion. We can only guess. For us to be accurate we would need to actually see and test components in order to give our recomendation

I would replace the transmission range selector switch 1st per this bulletin you refer to, this is the switch on the case of the transmission under the arm the shift cable attaches to, it is cheap, a transmission even used is very expensive, and i don't recommend ever using a used transmission in this van, to big a chance it is no good. This switch is also known as the neutral safety switch, below is the part number and price for the switch from rockauto.com, I also suggest u have a transmission repair shop drive the van and see what they think, they do this for free, Aamco is a good choice for a free inspection.
STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS Part # NS354
w/ A.T. $154.79
here is a picture of the switch
