Have you tried wiggling the steering wheel back and forth a little when you depress that lever? Does doing that make it work all the time? I know mine needs a wiggle every now and then to get to that sweet spot you mention. With mine, I think it's the column switch which requires me to pull the steering wheel and replace it. There is a Release Lever spring that makes that function well; in the photo, its item #21. The SW has to be pulled and then you can reach it. The image shows the rod as well.
Mine works but it needs to be replaced. I found a broken clip/spring on my floor and could not figure out what it was from. Turns out, it is that clip. The column does NOT need to be pulled.
