The linkage for the brake pedal lockout is down on the shifter and when coke and coffee is spilled on the console, it runs on it and keeps it from working. You have to remove the console and clean the linkage.

What is wrong with a 1999 VW Jetta that starts fine but will not shift from park?

I hear there was a problem with the parking switch. The parking switch (what I call it) is the mechanism that is connected to the brake which would need to be depressed before you could shift out of park. It is a safety feature. So basicaly when you would push in the brake pedal the switch would not activate and therefore you could not shift out of park. FYI there is a recall on the parking switch.

As a safety design, you do need to step on the brake pedal to shift out of park. If you are doing this and still can't shift, there may be something wrong in the transmission.
