Asked by Oct 24, 2015 at 09:59 PM about the 2002 Audi A4 1.8T Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an Audi A4 Quattro with automatic transmission and it will not shift
out of parking, the traction control light stays on when i turn the car on, the
brakes seem very loose and also the light by the gear is always off. Do you
maybe know what the problem might be? If anybody can give me some
help i would really appreciate that. I need to fix this problem as soon as
possible because i need my car to go to collage!

If i am reading this right,the car wont come out of park,check the neutral safety switch,it releases the shifter when you mash the break pedal.

First thank you very much for taking your time to answer my question. And that seems about the right solution of the problem that i am having. Is the neutral safety switch what allows the gear to move once you hit the brakes? if yes then that might be the problem. And do you have any idea where that switch might be?

My Saab has a bypass button next to the gear shifter. Put a small screwdriver in the hole & press down to release the gear shifter. The traction control and the soft brakes might be tied together, but not sure if it would have anything to do with a bad neutral safety switch.
