DCT steering wheel shift feature?

hey everyone, just purchased a 2012 e92 m3 dct and the steering wheel shift paddle does not work for upshift or downshift. all other steering wheel control features work tho and the shift stalk works as well. I took the airbag off the steering wheel to inspect for broken wires but everything looks good and all is connected. is there anywhere else I should look to see why the steering wheel paddles don't work? thanks in advance

I'd suggest the micro switches, however, it'd be odd to me why both don't work.
Typically it'll be just one switch. For both of them to be not working, you may need to hunt further down the wiring end to see if something is disconnected. Maybe a common ground for both switches?

Possible the steering wheel was swapped and the connector isn't connected under the airbag?

I took the airbag assembly off the steering wheel to inspect the harness and all is plugged in. it is odd that they both wouldn't work that's why I kinda don't think those are what are at fault here. does anyone here have access to wiring diagram?
