Isn't the dimmer switch further down the column, behind the dash? ISTR there'* a little pushrod running down the left side of the column to operate it from the lever. That'* the setup on my '96 Trans Sport minivan and I have an idea that the Bonneville is similar.
I think it would be good to pin down where the problem is here. For example, it'* possible to dismantle and reassemble the shift bowl (the part immediately below the steering wheel) and inadvertently get a little plastic guide out of position on the left side, so that either the turn-signal lever doesn't press on it properly, or its lower end doesn't press on the metal rod that leads down to the dimmer switch.
Or, the stuff up top may be just fine, but the dimmer switch has either broken or slipped out of position on the steering column down below. In that case you won't need to disassemble the steering wheel at all (hope that you don't
) because the repair is needed further down on the column, behind the dash.
I'd find the dimmer switch first, and see if it operates when you press on it with your thumb (push in on the end where the metal rod goes into it). If so, see if the metal rod moves when you pull back on the turn-signal lever. You should know at that point where the problem is.
