 Description of the problem i have now replaced by brake switch and brake light switch. I'm not sure if they are the same thing but i have replaced them both. The first one was the brake light switch. This was replaced because my lights would randomly turn on. Even when parked the lights would remain on. I got it to turn off by wedging something behind the brake so it would not go on. However, i paid $59 for it to get fixed. The other switch, the brake switch was replaced today. The charge was $137. This repair was due to the shifter being stuck in park. I have spent days with this problem and i feel my car should be under the recall. The service representative said that my car did not come up as a recall vehicle. If so many jettas need repairs for this problem why is not my car included in this recall. I experience the same problems as others and i am not being treated fairly. If vw is to keep its good reputation they should reimburse everyone who has similar or exact problems. In both instances the brake switch and brake light switch were replaced. If these are the same item then people should be notified about these problems and they should not be liable to pay for service on their vehicles! *ak
