Sometimes the parking pawl gets stuck because the car is on an incline and someone releases the brake before starting car.....if you can't select anything out of park then try getting someone to push or rock the car backwards whilst engine is off handbrake is off.....whilst you attempt to select neutral.if it moves out of park then hold the foot brake hard and put the handbrake back on.then reselect park and try restart car it should free up a locked parking pawl.otherwise it is electrical failure and could just be a simple fuse change or faulty switch in the selector.the above advice may work ...good luck!

If the engine has started, the safety interlock is bad. (an electrical interlock. Or the linkages to the shift lever are bad, or the bushings on the linkage, or even problems with the shift lever pivot.

Testimonial: "Thank you, To give a little more insight, this happened right after I checked some fuses while troubleshooting the washer fluid pump that was not working. I pulled and checked some fuses while the battery was still connected. I'm going to replace those fuses with the battery disconnected and see if that fixes it. I will also borrow a code reader to see what that yields."

I have a 2003vw jetta the epc light is on and the will not come out of park nor the stop lights come on,I have already changed the brake switch and still won't work..


EPC light should have nothing to do with the shift interlock,(EPC is traction control) should be a small cap or plug on the console, near the shifter that has the interlock disengage button,usually done with a key,check shift interlock in the owners manual.

2009 sonta wont go into park


the shifter wont move, or moves to park but park does not work?
try to be clear.
are you on flat ground?
are you against a curb
did you wiggle the steering and turn the key and wiggle the shifter to park? at once.

there is thing called park lock out but works moving from P/N to gears active, R/D/L. usually going to N/P is no problem. unless cables are rusty.

My 2009 vw jetta TDI has code po47a showing. What does this mean?


When my 2009 Jetta TDI check engine light came, I took it to my nearest VW dealer - about 100 miles away. $450 spent, and they said some kind of exhaust flap was stuck, and they replaced it. Within a month, the CE light came on again. Didn't want to drive 100 miles and get stuck up for another $500 so I purchased an OBD reader, and the code is PO47A. Apparently has something to do with the exhause pressure sensor. I ordered one, and repaced it myself (about $85) and cleared the code. After driving for about 10 miles, the CE light comes back on, and the error code is again PO47A. My repair manual for the car has codes for PO47B, PO47C and a few more, but no PO47A. the car runs just fine as it is, but I want to make sure there is nothing serious going on.

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...
