Bad transmission if it is an automatic or a bad clutch if it is a stick.

SOURCE: the driver side door lock broke on my 98 jetta door want open

according to my partsman (who has had great advice for many years), you do not have to remove the door panel to replace the door handle which contains the cylinder lock. the handle is released with a screw which you can see when you open the door. you will need a starhead screwdriver or socket. A new handle costs around $40 at a parts store in my area. call around for a locksmith who will re-key your key to the new lock or use the key which comes with the new lock, your choice. i am in dealing with this also

SOURCE: 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...

start procedure is to hold accelerator half down, turn key, wait for injector light to go out, then hold down clutch pedal and start. do not pump the gas. just hold it 1/2 down. when car starts, release gas and then rev it up until the alternator light goes out.

Jetta has no gas pedal pressure


If this car has a carb, the most common problem is the auto choke mechanism get siezed/ gummed up. Remove tha carb plenum in the morning before starting. Depress the accelerator pedal and check that the flap on top of the carb has closed.

Cruise control and throttle pedal go to a butterfly aperature on throttle body.  Look in the engine compartment and while someone pushs on gas pedal.   Look at the area where the cable comes out and goes around a semicircular widget (throttle body butterfly).  Cruise control has another cable that joins this same plate. Check for slack in cable, clear cable path,  and look for anything in that area that might be broken or routed wrong.  
good luck
