Brakes on 2003 Volkswagen Jetta

When I start my car sometimes I can't get it to go into reverse the Automatic stick is stuck and won't move until the car is warmed up. The little shoe on the dashbroad and the little shoe on the stickshift go off but does not let you shift. Can you tell me whats wrong. I had this problem fixed twice and they are telling me it is a sensor.. But I feel like I need to find out more about this problem this is my third time.

Unfortunately, transmission failures in Volkswagen Jettas are not uncommon. RepairPal includes a couple bullets on the problems on its Jetta page: http://repairpal.com/volkswagen-jetta-2003/common_problems In most cases, it looks like, significant repair work is needed to resolve the transmission problems.

When you step on the brake pedal do you hear/feel a click in response at the shift lever area ? Can you depress the button on the shift lever , with the brake pedal depressed ? If not the shift lock mechanism at the console needs help.....
