It sounds like you parked on an incline.the parking pawl is a bolt which is activated during park and if the car is allowed to roll against it ...I.e. If someone releases hand/ foot brake then it is very hard to release the park selection as it gets licked from normal free movement.you will need someone to rock or push the car towards the the incline to enable the pressure to release off the parking pawl.as it's an automatic I believe you can't do this without the engine running....but I would actually try to release the park before starting car by the above method.

Go to your local library and use their online "Mitchell on demand" or "Alldata" automotive programs and it will have the information for your car and will cost you only the copy amount for the print outs.

P0118 for Volkswagen - (ECT) Engine Colant Temperature Circuit High

Symptoms:- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes:
(Inspect the following... Repair/Replace if necessary)
- Low engine coolant level
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor
- Faulty engine coolant thermostat

P0118 VOLKSWAGEN Description: The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The modified signal returns to the (ECM) as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.
When is the code detected?:When an excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need further assistance.

Usually a corrosion problem with the antenna connectors at the radio and/or antenna, but can also be caused by a faulty antenna wire.

P0300 indicates a random misfire - a misfire that is not consistent and not confined to one cylinder. Worn/faulty spark plugs, failing coil(s) or coilpack, wiring, connections... Fix that and the other codes will probably disappear.

Disconnect and check the battery negative first, located in the trunk,"it's the accessory battery" if it's NOT giving a minimum 12 volts the convertible top will malfunction, and please DO NOT JUMP START OR RECHARGE at 12 volts WHILE CONNECTED TO THE CAR, if you choose to recharge it while in the car use a trickle charger at 2 amp over night.
If the red battery light remain present and the battery shows fully charged 12 volts, check the big fuse 100 under the 200 amp located under passenger side foot wall behind the black circle cover, remove foot wall carpet, foam, metal plate the 10 mm nuts to see the fuse cover.
Good luck.
