In brief: It is possible

Reflex erections are controlled by spinal nerve roots s2-s4, so it is possible that your spinal problem may be contributing to your erectile dysfunction.
You should see a urologist to ahev a full evaluation. Your neurologist will be able to help advise you as well.

In brief: Doubtful

To cause ED from nerve involvement, typically nerve roots from l2, 3, and 4 need to be involved.
L5 is mos likely too low to be the cause.
