First a black thick cable connects between acclerator control and the straight to the gearbox.[yoou can find it easily].just put less force and pull towards you[just a inch,holding top end in your hand] and release back to normal.if you cant then you have to clean the cable.secondly,clean the filter in the automatic gearbox...it can be doneby petrol and dry with blower.

Check with VW there is a recall on the transmission shift body. The pressure control valve is sticking. Assuming you have a automatic trans. the starting problem can and maybe do to a sticking valve also.
check transmission fluid and notice color if dark red or maroon a trans mission fluid and filter change is in order/everybody changes the oil/filter but not transmission fluid and filter this is working 10 more and hard than the engine!/sorry when off ! sound like no overdrive concern could be stuck valve onside trans (please note when pan is dropped a little metal is normal chucks is not)good luck!
Governor may be stuck. a solenoid may be stuck open, or stuck closed, or the transmission throttle cable has come undone at one end or the other or has come loose at the ajustment point.
Is the fluid level correct? Is the tranmission fluid correct? (foaming issue) Does the fluid smell burned significantly?
Will it shift if you let up on the accelerator for an instant and then step on it again? If it will shift while doing that, add some seal conditioner as you have a leaking servo seal or clutch apply seal. If that does not correct it after a period of time, the only real fix will be to pull the transmission and do a rebuild.
when the " S " light flashes, there is something wrong with the transmission. So I guess the transmission got stuck internally. Try to flush the trans fluid and put in new fluid. If it still giving gear shifting problem, looks like you have to rebuilt the transmission or buy reconditioned unit.
