take kick panel off (careful not to bend tear iot or loose/break chime thingy with wires)
take steering colum cover off (easy)
remove all the plugs levers and connectors (screws) clean em all up. (note how to put em back as you go)
spray the heck out of the switches with electrical parts cleaner and maybe some light WD 40 after. blow em out with compressed air before you go hot!.
This worked on my bad turn signal switch and electric mirrors and door switches for mirrors.
Might work for you.
Years of crap and oxidation.
Maybe try and clean the light switch on dash too, from the back?. (sounds like this is OK though)
My cruise control even works. LOL
There is a big white connector with all the wires from this lever, high low beam,turn signals OBC too, might check that, disconnect reconnect.
As long as you are in there, clean/lube the ignition lightly/carefully.
May be one of the relays. (I think its next to the fuse box)
Check wiring diagram
remove and clean them or replace.
Ask starMavin? LOL
