Could be worn out cable in the shifter mechanism. Years ago I read about this with another member.

yes hopefully only a broken wire. See DIY link, it will give you some idea on how to investigate.

I recently lost my DS mode completely, turned out to be a broken wire. Patched wire, problem solved.
