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.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

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.
