2006 VW Bug: gear selector..all (PRNDS) and then randomly returns

Resolved Question:

The gear selector (on the dash) on my 2006 VW Bug intermittan lights all (PRNDS) and then randomly returns to the proper highlighting of the gear selected. Is this a indication of something that needs to be reset?

I believe you have a 6 speed tiptronic. It is probably the tiptronic switch in the shifter mechanism. Hopefully you are still under factory warranty. It will need replacing. Contact the dealer to see if it is under warranty.
