My girlfriend's 2001 Automatic Jetta GLS got stuck in park this morning at the gas station and wont shift into gear. This has happened before but always cured itself with a little time and patience, but today she was stranded indefinetely. Does anyone know what a possible cause and fix could be? It will be taken to a mechanic shortly, but I would like to have a little knowledge under my belt before I talk to the mechanic.
Also, the EPC light on the dash just came on the night before this all happened...related in any way? I read some other posts somewhere about a faulty brake switch, coudl this be the problem? Where is this located and is it an easy fix? Thanks.
