OK, so I just installed an iPod/iPhone interface on my 2006 VW Passat 3.6. This plugs into the factory stereo and lets you charge your phone or listen to music.

So once it was all done, I could not shift out of park. Then I get a message for parking brake fault and airbag fault. Also, I see the icon for something with the steering wheel and the ESP is off. I tried all the resets I found on this forum and nothing worked.

When I cant get the ESP to switch off and once in a while the check engine light comes on, but it is not on all the time.

I guess I will try a new parking brake switch in the morning, if I can find one. But I am hoping someone here has some ideas.

I did uninstall the iPhone interface and no difference. I am leaving the car's battery unplugged overnight and hoping that all works in the morning.
