Shifting Out of Park Position


hi..

spaclear.gif A simple procedure to prevent being jammed in PARK on a grade:
  1. Do not put it in PARK until, with foot brake applied, you've secured the parking (emergency) brake.


  2. Before releasing the parking brake, apply the foot brake and move the shift lever to NEUTRAL or DRIVE.

Automatic transmission not shifting gears


Sound like trans is shot to me. If fluid level is correct and doesn't smell burnt check and see if it has a transmission filter. It may need changed.

1998 VW Beetle 5-speed trouble getting it in to reverse


I have a 1998 VW Beetle and when I first bought it, (used) shifting into first was the same action for shifting into reverse. They were so close I usually went into first when trying for reverse. I took it to a transmission shop and they replaced part of the shift linkage that is famous for wearing. It cost me maybe $60.00. Now she shifts like a new car.

My 1998 Tauris won'y shift into gear, the button on the shift can not be depressed and therefore the shift won,t move.


Make sure your brake lights work, if they do then the problem is the solenoid which controls the locking of the shifter mechanism and is located under a panel somewhere around the base of the shifter shaft...... if your brake lights don't work, you probably need to replace their fuse which shoulod fix the problem.

I have a 1998 vw beetle i want to know what does the tcm do in my car


TCM stands for Transmission Control Module.
It is a firmware programed device designed to control the shift points of your VW's automatic transmission. It is also responsible for safeguarding the transmission against abuse or other damaging problems from the operator as well as the engine. For instance, if you were driving down the interstate and accidentally bumped the shifter into reverse. the TCM would "see" that you are traveling at a high rate of speed and reverse was selected but nothing would happen. Or, your engine is misfiring, the TCM may only allow certain gears to be used to avoid you stalling in the road.
When a TCM malfunctions your car may not shift into overdrive, or in worse cases may not shift at all causing you to have to shift the transmission manually.
Most late model automatic cars have a TCM.

1998 vw beetle wont go into reverse


This may not be what you are looking for.
The stick shifter must be physically pushed down into the floor. Straight down into the shift boot, then left and up as the diagram on the shifter shows. Good luck.

Automatic shift has trouble getting into gear


If you have spilled any coke or coffee on shifter it will cause the shift lock actuator to stick if you have floor shifter. You will have to remove center console to clean. If nothing has been spilled shift lock actuator needs to be replaced.
