Could be the brake switch or the shifter lock solenoid.

Wont shift from park


Check to see if brake lights work. The safety system uses a switch on the top of the brake pedal lever to prevent shifting out of Park without putting your foot on the brake.

If you lose the signal from this switch, it will not come out of Drive. Often the drivers' foot hits and moves or breaks this switch. Look under your dash to inspect this part.

Once you get the brake lights working, it should shift out of Park.

The brake pedal on 2002 jetta doesnt seem to be recognized by the rest of the car, the car wont shift out of park and the tail lights wont go on at all. Is it just a fuse?


Not a fuse, I would run the issue past a VW parts desk guy, found at a VW dealership, and buy a new brake light switch unless he advises you otherwise. Dealerships have info on recalls, tech bulletins, and just watching parts sales over the years helps identify common problems.

If you can buy fuel for it, you can buy a service manual on CD, will come in handy on this and many other issues.

2000 mercedes benz ml 430 gear is locked in park


The 2000 Mercedes models all utilize a Shift Interlock, which will only allow the vehicle to be shifted out of Park while the brake is applied. The way this works is that a lock pin holds the shift lever in the Park position until a solenoid is powered by the brake light circuit, pulling the lock pin away from the shift linkage. The wire to the solenoid may come loose, or the brake light switch may fail. If someone tried to remove the vehicle from Park without applying the brake, the end of the lock pin may have become jammed. Try two things: 1) Start the vehicle, put your foot on the brake, and attempt to move the shift lever from Park to Reverse. 2) If you cannot remove the vehicle from Park, are the brake lights coming on? If not, a) replace the 15A fuse for the brake light circuit, and b) try Step 1 again. 3) If you cannot remove the vehicle from Park and the brake lights are coming on normally, locate the interlock solenoid at the shift lever and make sure it is properly connected. When you put your foot on the brake, the solenoid should retract. If it does not, check for 12V at the solenoid when you put your foot on the brake. If you have voltage, replace the solenoid. If you do not have voltage, you have a broken wire between the brake light switch and the solenoid. If the solenoid retracts but you still cannot remove the vehicle from Park, your shift linkage may have become bent at the transmission linkage. Hope that's helpful! :)

2000 jetta does not shift into reverse


is this going from park?? if so, it could be the module inside the cover where the shifter is...this is the piece that tells the shifter when the brake is pressed and allows it to shift.... check that out and let me know if u have anything else....

The EPC In my 02 bug is on and it wont shift out of park. whats going on?


Hello glitzandg252...This has been a problem for many VW owners.
Brake Light Switch Malfunction is the cause of it. In fact VW has issued a recall for the defective brake switch here's the info:

Recall 04V096000: Brake Light Switch Malfunction

DEFECT: The brake light switch on these vehicles may malfunction. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative, or come on and stay on, even though the vehicle is parked.

REMEDY: Dealers will replace these switches. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.
Copyright © 2004 ALLDATA LLC

Give them a call and see if your vehicle is included in the recall, you will need the VIN number.

In the mean time ...|VW Roadside Assistance has a technique that will get you by until you can get repairs done.... Here's the technique:

1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Press the brake pedal 5 times, and on the 5th, keep your foot on the brake and start the car.
3. Let it run 5 seconds, and turn it off.
4. With your foot still on the brake, turn the ignition key 1/4 forward
5. Shift to a position between N & D
6. Now start the car. Shift to D. It what you really want to do is back out, shift from D to R.

Good luck...i hope this helps. Please take time to rate my response a FIXYA...

ASL on cannot get into gear, and brake light are out


To get the car out of park you have to put the shifter right in between neutral and drive and as soon as the car starts put it in drive. Keep your foot on the brake obviously. You can go to Reversve once you get the car started and in DRive.
