Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

Standard or automatic? If auto have you checked your fluid. Is it full and what does it look like a bright red or a deep burnt red that smells burnt. Automatic transmissions use solenoids to control shifts for a while now. Occasionally they can get plugged or quit working due to small metal filings that come from where on transmission. When they gopen they will cause hard shifts.. p.'s. Is it cold where you are as vw transmissions really don't like the cold. They is many reports of cold weather causing hard shifts and also slow reacting to going into drive or reverse.

Yes, add more fluid, but at the trans dipstick tube where you check it. I'd find out why that line popped off before it happens again and ruins a costly transmission.

Might want to check your relays to make sure that your problem is a simple fix.
Another thing to look for is wiring which may be broken or damaged. Common area is by the drive side, under the carpet area. You may want to check wiring in the engine compartment which could be damaged.

is the belt driving the compressor ok?
Chances are it was once overtightened, and the seal on the compressor is shot and the bearings not far behind.
Ask for the dye to be put in on your next re-gas and you'll soon see where it's coming from.
