i expect its pulling the wiring loom/connector away from the switch very slightly, remove the cowling and see if there is any sort of cable tie/tape around the wires from light switch if so cut free carefully and tape back up LOOSELY so the wires can move with the tilt of the wheel
chech for loose wiring on the ignition. remove the steering cover and with key on engine off stand out of the way of airbag and wiggle the electrical connector and see if u can duplicate problem also check 4 chaffed wiring
Verify that the multifunction turn signal lever is in the center of the OFF position.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disable the SIR (air bag) system. Refer to the Chassis Electrical Section.
Remove the air bag module from the steering wheel.
Remove the steering wheel.
Remove the upper and lower steering wheel trim covers using the following procedure.
Remove the tilt lever assembly.
Remove the two pan head tapping screws from the lower shroud.
Unlock the upper and lower shroud.
Remove the two Torx® head screws from the upper shroud.
Remove the upper shroud.
Remove the wire harness straps from the wire harness assembly and detach the wiring harness connectors from the switch side connectors.
Remove the two multifunction turn signal switch screws and remove the multifunction switch assembly from the vehicle.
Install the multifunction switch to the steering column. Use a small flat-blade prytool to compress the electrical contact and move the multifunction turn signal switch into position. Verify that the electrical contact rests on the canceling cam. Install the screws and tighten to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
Route the wire harness along the steering column jacket assembly and secure into the wire harness strap. Install a new wire tie to the upper tilt head assembly and another lower along the wiring harness, as the original installation.
Verify that the lever is in the center of the OFF position.
Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
Route the SIR connector through the steering wheel, align the scribe mark on the steering wheel made at removal, with the slash mark on the steering shaft and install the steering wheel. Install the steering shaft nut and torque to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
Install the horn contact leads and the air bag connector to the back of the air bag. Make sure the CPA wedge is in place to secure the connector. Install the air bag by gently pushing on both the right and left sides of the air bag until the retaining springs engage.
Enable the SIR system by connecting the yellow 2-way connector at the base of the steering column and installing the air bag fuse.
Connect the negative battery cable. Test the horn, turn signals and headlight operation.
obviously the wires between the steering column are worn and broken .replacement or fix is needed this is notorious with tilt wheel . as you already noticed tilting the wheel causes one issue and or result and another position causes yet another result ......most likely cause resides within the turn signal lever itself ...either remove the bottom cover to the column and find what wire is doing what or i would suggest a replacement part is far more worthy in the end and try to not use the tilt as much it is a notorious to occur on any vehicle . consider either after market or salvage yard .
turn wheel so tires are straight-turn key to lock remove key -disconnect neg term at battery- remove air bag fuse in panel by drivers door-remove left side dash knee panel- unplug the connector position assurance(cpa) and yellow 2 way connector at base of steer/column--un lock steer/wheel and turn 90 deg --using a screw driver at the back of s/w is an opening push screw driver in opening releasing clip-turn wheel 180 deg other way and do same -tilt air bag up to access wiring connector disconnect inflator module and cpa clip
Remove horn pad . After removing the large nut SCRIBE A LINE ON THE CENTER SHAFT and the STEERING WHEEL, Using a steering wheel puller, remove steering wheel. Now comes the tricky part. Remove signal stalk ( just pull out a couple of inches ),and 4-way flasher knob. Disconnect multiple connector of signal switch. Remove 3 screws holing switch down. Gently pull upward on switch to expose lower steering bowl. The large bolts are LOOSE that secure it, so the reason for the wobble. Tighten bolts, and reverse procedure.
Try the ignition switch, dodge has them on backorder so there is a problem that just has not got big enough to recall. The switch is only $14.30 unless you have a V10. Mine started off as the turnsignals quit working unless you moved the tilt steering and the the heater would only work in the tilt up position.
