VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT BATTERY PROBLEM
2002 Volkswagen Passat • 90 miles
Battery went dead so I charged it and the airbag code came up on the dash. Brought it to my mechanic he took off the codes and now the shifter won't go into drive. There is a button on the shifter that turns green when u press on the brake that disengages the shift. He tried removing the battery cables to reset the computer hoping it would work. It starts but will not disengage. What can I do?

It sounds like the park lock solenoid isn't releasing. Are the brake lights working? Power to release the solenoid comes from the brake light switch.
I saw my mechanic checking fuses. He keeps telling me it might be the computer. I don't know.
Has he confirmed that the park lock solenoid isn't getting power or not working?
I will see him tomorrow and suggest that. The car also shakes when idles I'm hoping its not the computer since the check engine light keeps coming on
If the check engine light is coming on, he should scan the computer to see what is causing the problem. It could be a simple as a vacuum leak.
How do I replace a battery in a 2009 Chevy Equinox LS with a 3.4L V6. Most cars are straight forward, this looks difficult. Shame on GM. Thanks.
