The PCm (cars computer) is nolonger working correctly. its a loss of communication issue. Back to the dealer you have to go possibly for a new computer and to have it reprogrammed. First tho, Check ALL the fuses under the hood and under the driver side dash board area. Most likely will be in the box under the hood.

My 2001 vw jetta won't shift to second gear


run fault codes and look for a problem in the transmission. Check oil and coolant level as the light is a warning for both the engine and gear box and the failure to shift gears may be that the CPU has locked the vehicle in limp mode to restrict damage in the drive train units.

2001 vw passat not shifting out of first


The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

Take it to a V W Dealer and have them service it.. Make sure you have your transmission fluid changed and get a tune up. Explain to them what it is doing.

I had a similar problem on my vw jetta. Check your vacuum modulator line. It is a black line that is about 8 inches long and 5/32 in diameter (about the size of a pencil) connecting the intake manifold to the modulator. Overtime this line cracks and does not efficiently provide the correct vacuum for the modulator which senses throttle position which tells the transmission when to shift. Your transmission will stay in gear simply because it thinks the engine is not producing enough power. This line is 95 cents to replace and can be bought at any auto store. Check this line and system before they mess with transmission fluid etc.

1996 VW Passat GLS transmission shift problem


Like to make sure that your post says your car is a 1996 with only 38800 miles.
There were many recalls for your vehicle back then which may be the cause of your hard shifting. Are you the original owner ? If so, have you done any scheduled maintenance to it from the day you purchased it ?
