Maybe a problem dimmer/multifunction switch? Did you test for voltage, anywhere?

Just to add, if you fool with the steering column, disarm the air-bag first. Another thought is the headlamp switch, there is circuit breaker in the headlamp switch. Note the voltage wires in the diagram, check for voltage when problem is ongoing.
