Welcome to Just Answer Jeep my name is Mark.


Both of these items are controlled by the multi function switch on your steering column and we change quite a few of these switches. So, it appears your switch will need replacing.

is this in the column or can it be reached from the outside of the column

You just need to remove the 2 plastic halves around the top of the column and then you can replace the switch. There are a couple or three screws on the underside to remove the 2 halves.
