Likely you have a shift control module malfunction. Module is probably on the right side fender in the engine compartment. Check to see if you have one (some do and some dont... go figure...I've got a 91 & 95... I have about five different diagrams and NONE apply to my vehicles)

Behind your ashtray and fuse cover there are relays, there is a relay that is for you overdrive this needs to be replaced and your problem will go away. The relay is marked with the letter " I ".

SOURCE: 1982 rabbit shift linkage
There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.
Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.
If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.
There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.
The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.
Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.
You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.
This is much easier if you have an assistant.

I had the same problem and also linkage inside the car. I took ball joint apart and cleaned the surface then put silicone inside ball joint. Joined the two together then I put plastic tie wraps for wiring around the ball joints, two per ball joint. Let sit for 24 hours and it worked. It is probably temporary but it got me out of a $165 an hour repair job 500 miles from home. Hope this works for you as it tightens up the linkage and worked great. CW
