It could be the turn signal relay. It could also be the connection to the immobilizer unit or in the unit itself.
See if there are any "Service Bulletins" on it at your local dealership.
Also have the trouble codes pulled. Any Advance Auto or Auto Zone will do this for free.

It could be a loose connection somewhere and the bashing of the dash might have reset the the problem.

Don't replace anything until you have performed test to certify that it is faulty.

If the problem does not come back, then it would be difficult to verify what had gone wrong. Most probably a loose connection and intermittent faults are hard to diagnose.

Check for loose ground circuits first.
