I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
This would most likely be a simple faulty stalk or a fault with light module
You can try to unhook the car battery for an hour to see if anything will reset, if no luck, I would consider installing a new stalk. If still no joy then the module would be a main dealer only job
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
