2002 cabrio convertible, gear stuck and won't start

Asked by Jan 27, 2017 at 05:58 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio

Question type: General

So I stupidly forgot to put my car in park before
turning the car off. No it won't start up and the gear
is stuck in Drive, will not let me take key out. The
dash shows the oil, battery and engine lights every
time I try to start up. How do I fix this

Try putting it into neutral, put your foot on the brake, and try starting it. The car will not start in drive. Or just try putting your foot on the brake and shifting it into park.
