Drive Mode Switch

Has anyone had issues with the Drive Mode Switch?
I had this message/logo come up intermittently, then on solid.
When the symbol was displayed, the little lights on the switch and mode indicator are not on, and the horn did not work. When the symbol went away, all worked including the horn.
Moving the switch to another mode did not matter. I disconnected the battery for a few hours and reconnected. Started and let idle for 30 minutes. Still has problem.

Only a diagnostic tool like the SD3/DEIS or equivalent will tell the exact error codes stored in the impacted ECUs. Maybe you have a wiring issue in the steering wheel and/or column. Maybe you got a Can-BUS issue with one of the F430 ECUS or instrument panel cluster node. There can be many other reasons. I would start first pulling our the error codes.

UPDATE:
The problem has been taken care of by Eurocar-Werk in Houston.
The clock-spring was replaced.

Thanks for your update! The clock-spring can indeed wear out after 13 years of service
