Umm yay i found the problem.... for lack of a better word, how the hell could this happen?!

Problem: No gear seletor lights and gear change malfunction.

It got fixed, but really, how is this possible?

I had the exact issue with my steptronic shifter. The indicator lights went out intermittently at first, then the indicators, & sport button light just went out. The stealer replaced the whole shifter unit. Had to get it programmed too. Totally warrantied! :thumbup:
