Default The shift lock on an Automatic Jetta won't let the car out of park (yes the brake is pressed).

Where is the manual override to release the shift lock on a Jetta?

Default Was it parked on a hill? The torque converter could be locked up -- if so you need someone

to push the car in the opposite load direction to take the strain off.

Default the brake pedal switch/sensor might be loose or disconnected. try putting it in neutral before

you start it, that's what I had to do with my old car when that happened. The switch tells the computer that you have the brake depressed and can shift the car out of park

Default Tried that, but it won't let the car into D or R. Every time you restart the car it locks.

Default I am 90% sure pedal switch/sensor... is there a manual override to get it moving?

That way he can drive to the dealership and get it fixed. Otherwise it needs to be towed.
More $$$ (out of warr)

Default srsly, check the switch on the brake pedal (up at the top of the pedal arm)

Default Starts, stops, runs fine, and the wheel turns. I think it's the sensor on the brake.

Default If the switch is broke it will need replaced. Looking for a temp workaround to drive it.
