Sounds like you have electrical malfunction on your transmission. I suggest you go to Advance Auto or Autozone and borrow their DTC scan tool and hook up to your car and get the code. It will tell you what's up with it.

Will not shift in overdive


At the very least you have a 3 speed transmission with overdrive, maybe even more gears. Assuming it is an automatic.
It should shift twice then go into lock-up before shifting into overdrive.
You would feel four shifts under normal conditions.
As far as not shifting, the problem could be electrical or something inside the transmission.
And the check engine light should be on.

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.

Transmission wont go into overdrive on my 01 beetle, if you shift it manual it shifts hard into 3rd gear, every light on the dash is on. are all these problems related?


Try tuning the transmission by changing the fluid, filter and pan gasket. You might have to do it twice but in a few cases with newer vw beetles I have noticed a pattern of bad transmissions

My 1999 volkswagen cabrio will not shift into overdrive.


first i would bring it the the vw dealer and tell the service advisor you would like them to "reset basic settings on my transmission" if they tell you it will take 1 hour tell them "it will only take you five minutes" and maybe they will just charge you half an hour for it.

there may still be an internal problem with your transmission but this is how i fix 90% of all vw transmission concerns.
