After messing with the fuses the transmission locked up. I am pretty sure all of the fuses are in the right place because I found the diagram for my car and did everything exactly as it said to. I don't know where the button or switch to turn off the emergency lock is. Right now after I turn on the car it works fine but doesn't let me change the transmission from P (parking). The car is a 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Wolfsburg Edition.
Re: VW Jetta Transmission Locked Up & Car Won't Start
This also happened to me today. I bought an OBDII scanner and connected it to the car thinking I could reset it somehow. The car won't communicate with the scanner (not because of compatibility I tried it with another VW jetta.) How did you resolve this problem?

From the tear of the car I guess you have the 4-speed automatic. That transmission is not one of the most reliable ones...it has an internal wiring harness with relays attached to it, that are in control of what gear to select, based on input from an internal speed sensor, engine speed sensor and wheel speed sensor. There is also an issue with VW claiming that the transmission "is filled for life", which is absolute B.S. You have to change the transmission fluid and the filter at least every 60K or you will face an expensive rebuild. Have your mechanic scan the computer for fault codes related to the transmission and change the fluid and filter when the problem got fixed.
Check with VW there is a recall on the transmission shift body. The pressure control valve is sticking. Assuming you have a automatic trans. the starting problem can and maybe do to a sticking valve also.
Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for
checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of
the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the
side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain
pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for
pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

The trick is to take off the belt and spin the different things and see if any of them make the noise you hear. Water pump, alternator, power steering, air pump, belt tensioner pulley. You could also briefly (30 seconds) run the engine without the belt and see if it still makes the noise.
