Mk4 gti 1.8t cut out

Hi,

My mate just bought a Mk4 Golf gti 1.8t. When changing from 2nd to 3rd it just cut and refused to start. We tried everything to start it, and eventually we locked the car then unlocked it again and then it started. What could have caused this problem when on the move and past 1st gear?

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
