it might be the e break sensor . ive heard of them causing shut downs . also check all fluid levels if your coolant is too low the sensor will shut it down lol. and i think theres a break light recall that might have something to do with it . take it in to vw if you have the means for a scan . of find someone in your area with a vag com . it can read the error codes from the computer . good luck

EPC: Electronic Power Control
The ME7 engine management system uses electronic controls to operate the throttle valve rather than the usual braided cable. Pedal resistance and operation matches cable designs so that the operator is unlikely to differentiate. In an event of a failure with either one of the accelerator pedal position sensor (G79 or G185), the other sensor signal would be used in a limited capacity with functions such as cruise control deactivated. If both sensors malfunction, the ECM will limit engine speed to proximately 1200 rpm.
Now as to your question regarding error codes (DTC, SAE/VAG fault codes), as VW scan tool or similar needs to be hooked up to your vehicle in order to read which ones are stored in the ECU. This codes will tell you which area of the system came from and what problem they are related to. Only with a scanner makes all this possible, without it, it would be an expensive guessing game besides being very unreliable.

Have it scanned from a shop that specializes in VW's and get the best guestimates of what's happening with the system. Now if you have the codes already, interpreting what it means is a different story and probably able to suggest you the corrections right away.
