The automatic transmissions in the 2002 TDIs are notorious for failures of various kinds. The behavior you are observing suggests such a failure to me. I would suggest you search here for more information on "01M transmission" and see why many are replacing these with a 5 speed manual transmission when they fail.

Doug, thanks for the follow-up. I would enjoy learning about the troubleshooting that got you there. Those things can help others when they have the same trouble.
