I have a new Golf, and with this cold weather, my Parking Brake Lock keeps sticking because the switch is so cold. Is anyone else in this area having the same problem. I am talking about when you have to press the brake down to shift into reverse or drive on an automatic transmission. Has anyone experienced this problem?

My trunk lock froze for a day. Wouldn't lock, all you have to do was pull on the handle.
And the open door loght on my dash flashed on and off for a day.

When this happens again, look in your rear view mirror and see if the brake lights are on. If not, your brake pedal switch needs adjusting or replacing. Same thing happened to wifes car.
