Can not shift out of park?

Asked by for the 2004 Volkswagen Touareg
I would first check your Brake Light Switch. Do your Brakes light work? Because that is the switch that releases the shift lever.

Check that the brake lights are working, if the brake light switch is bad, neither the shift lock mechanism or the brake lights will operate.
If the brake light switch is working, have someone look at the shift lock system.
