Question about Cars & Trucks
Run fault codes to see what has failed. Resetting with out repairing is a futile exercise as the faults are still there.

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

Turn on the ignition switch without starting the vehicle and mash the accelerator to the floor 3 times slowly and this should reset the change oil sensor.

Hello glitzandg252...This has been a problem for many VW owners.
Brake Light Switch Malfunction is the cause of it. In fact VW has issued a recall for the defective brake switch here's the info:
Recall 04V096000: Brake Light Switch Malfunction
DEFECT: The brake light switch on these vehicles may malfunction. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative, or come on and stay on, even though the vehicle is parked.
REMEDY: Dealers will replace these switches. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.

Give them a call and see if your vehicle is included in the recall, you will need the VIN number.
In the mean time ...|VW Roadside Assistance has a technique that will get you by until you can get repairs done.... Here's the technique:
1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Press the brake pedal 5 times, and on the 5th, keep your foot on the brake and start the car.
3. Let it run 5 seconds, and turn it off.
4. With your foot still on the brake, turn the ignition key 1/4 forward
5. Shift to a position between N & D
6. Now start the car. Shift to D. It what you really want to do is back out, shift from D to R.
Good luck...i hope this helps. Please take time to rate my response a FIXYA...
