Default Automatic shifter question

My 02 jetta has been acting up lately when starting it up and puting it into gear. I put my foot on the brake and press the button but it will not release and i can see the indicator lights still on as iff I have not press the brake. I was told this is a switch in my center console going out. Has anyone messed with this before. thanks

Nope it is your brake switch on the brake pedal. There is a recall on the switch. Your brake lights are also not working when this happens, get it replaced. If you don't want to go to the dealer, you can buy one on tdi parts for about ten bucks I think.
