    I have the same issue on a 1996 VW Jetta GL. I don't drive it, but I thought when the 4-way flashers are on - isn't the 4 amber lights supposed to flash and not the front 2 amber lights and the back 2 brake lights?

Volkswagen Jetta won't go into gear from park what

There's a relay on the brake pedal arm that actuates when you press the brake pedal. This releases the lock on the shifter, so you can shift out of Park. VW's are notorious for having issues with this relay. Stick your head down by the brake pedal and you'll see where the pedal arm hits the relay. It's more than likely stuck, and may not need to be replaced. I'm guess you probably have no brake lights either...

2000 jetta brake light turns on

Assuming you mean that it turns on all the time, you will need to check the switch under the driver side of the dash. This switch is designed to touch the back of the brake pedal when you release the brake. If it has looks broken, the part needs to be replaced. If it does not touch the back of the pedal, you need to unscrew it a bit until it does. If left alone it will run your battery down.

I changed the rear brakes on my Jetta tdi and now the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor. It does stop eventually and the parking brakes work. But it stops poorly

you probably have air in the line after brakes are done refill resevoir with brake fluid then the caliper has a little screw for bleeding brakes you must pump brakes 2-3 times leave your foot down until you have someone else open the screw on the caliper to release air or sometimes brake fluid close screw and repeat until the petal gets hard again do it to both rear brakes see if this works..

Wondering how to bleed rear barkes and calipers on

If you have two brake bleeder screw then close, release brake...repeat until you hear no air bubbles. Fluid will comes out of bleeder. do not reuse. Brake fluid must be clean.
Do one brake at a time. You should feel normal pedal pressure when complete.
If you are by yourself, you can put tubing over the bleeder screw and insert into a small bottle to catch the fluid, and create a air tight seal. It is called a one man bleeder kit.
One other way, is to use a hand vaccum pump to **** to fluid through the lines.
Good Luck! It is easy as pie.

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds

I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))

Pressing brake causing blinker issue

The trailer harness that was installed probably has a short inside the box that distributes power to the trailer pig-tail. Remove the trailer harness. You problem will be cured.

Auto gearshift lock on 2000 jetta won't unlock

Check and make sure the brake lights work, if the system doesn't get a signal that the brake pedal is pressed it won't come out of part, it is the park interlock safety feature, the problem won't be bulbs, it will be a brake light switch problem, if the brake light do work, the next place to look is the park release solenoid, it will be on the steering column most likely down low under the dash.

Check to see if you have a burnt out light bulb, that usually causes your blinkers to stop working when you apply the brakes. and check your four way flasher fuse, it's part of your turn signals and brake lighting system.

I think there may be a control unit for the fan near one of the front suspension mounts, but it may be a "stuck" relay in the main relay board. Unfortunately I don't know which one it is, but you could remove and replace them one by one until it stops!

If it is one of the removable relays you could try giving it a "reminder" by tapping it on a hard surface and hope that it frees itself.
Hope this helps you a bit. D.
