Question about 1994 Volkswagen Golf
If the shifte indicator is showing the transmission in 2nd gear vs. park or neutral then yes it is very probable that it may start in a gear (closing the neutral safety switch) keep in mind the car will of course "take off" on you once started. I would highly recommend repairing this prior to use; it is only a matter of time until old habits emerge and you start the car with out be prepared for it to move on you. If you must use it please be certain to have your foot firmly on the brake when starting; I'd throw on the emergency brake for good measure too.
I hope this may have helped,

Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.
A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.
