Good news, I found what appear to be the holes to mount the floor dimmer switch now I just need to get a switch and the connector to hook up to the harness to add it in then hopefully that will resolve my blinker issue...IF I am lucky lol

Just about any parts store will have a replacement switch and connector.

Got the high beam switch installed and working and all for less than $25.
blinkers are still giving me fits though, I was able to unplug the blinker connector at the steering column and turn on headlights still have both blinkers going on with headlights however I did determine that if I remove the brown wire from the headlight connector and turn headlights on the blinkers stay off and still work the same as with headlights off. I still have both blinkers coming on at the same time but its a step in the right direction I am wondering if I should try to overlay that brown wire from the switch up to the front of the car and see what I get from there?
I did go through shaking and moving the harness around with lights on and had no change so I am not thinking whatever has gone wrong is a solid connection and not something minor.

Do you have a large readable wiring diagram to work with?

Rather than experimenting; you can trace any wire to see if it is supposed to be causing the emergency flashers to activate or not due to bad wiring or a short.

yes I do, the brown wire I am talking about shows to go to go to the turn signals but not sure why they would come on with the headlights unless it is supposed to be used as a daytime running light?
The more and more I mess with this thing the more I am wondering if I would not be better off just replacing the wires rather than trying to trace down a short somewhere in the harness.
I may try to pull the switch out of my El Camino and see if they are the same just to test them, I know everything on that car works fine.
