This sounds like the gear selector switch is going bad or it is out of adjustment, a good VW shop can put it on a machine and check the selector points and make sure it is in the gear that the shifter is placed in.

Also this car is probably still under its powertrain warranty.

All gear lights on rather than just the one selected indicates fault code in the transmission control unit--
