Are your lights stock? If not how are they modded?

Check those wannabe bulbs, they may have damaged your harnesses/connectors due to excessive heat (yes even the stock wattage ones can do this). If that is what happened you'll need to buy new connectors w/wire pigtails and splice them in place of the damaged ones.
And after that don't use those bulbs any more, use OEM or equivalent quality and avoid the aftermarket blue-coated ones.

If moving the control stalk back and forth doesn't work, it's probably a problem with the switching mechanism in that stalk.

chances are if it happened when you operated the stalk, and you know that it was your hitting it that brought about the change, it's more than likely the stalk. take the steering wheel cover off and poke around or just take it to a dealership... might want to get those ricer bulbs out first though.
