Right turn signal won't stop blinking

I have a 2001 BMW 530i and I had some trouble with it last year. I took a trip and on the way back my high beams kept flashing on and off. Now they work fine except the high beams off position is now on and the on position is of. Today I started my car and the right blinker was on and it won't shut off. When I turn the right blinker on the left one turns on instead. The button the changes the information on the dash doesn't always work. I thought it was the turn signal switch assembly, but when I plugged a new one in nothing changed. Any idea what could be causing the problem?

You have entered the Twilight Zone (if you remember Rod Serling).

That is strange maybe something with the LCM. Did you try detaching battery and reconnecting? Maybe there is a way to reset the LCM as well...
