My paddle steering wheel is not working properly. It does not change gear on one side properly or it is intermittent, what might be causing this?

It’s probably the steering wheel angle sensor which has failed, these cannot be bought separately, only as a whole steering wheel. The problem needs a diagnostic machine to verify, if this is the case a new steering wheel is the answer. The car looks to the steering wheel angle sensor to see how much steering input you have when deciding how to brake safely in an emergency. Safety note: the ABS and ESP may not work properly in an emergency if these are faulty.
