wont shift out of park on 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

engine will start, but will not shift out of park

Sounds like the shift lock is inoperative. The shift lock gets a signal from the brake light switch, so if the brake light switch is bad, it will not shift out of park. Check to see if your brake lights are working.
