Recently got the steering wheel lock assembly fixed on my 09 Octavia vRS as it broke. Since getting the car back I've noticed 2 things:

a) the convenience indicators have stopped working. Used to be able to tap it and it would blink 3 times, now it doesn't.

b) the info panel shows when the car is in park as "P" but when you move it to reverse it shows "R" briefly before disappearing. Then when driving it doesn't show off you are in D or S mode, where it used to show D1, D2 etc.

Could the replacement unit installed be to blame, if it came from an earlier model it similar?

Could something have not been wired up correctly?

I've tried resetting factory settings through the info panel but that hasn't helped.
