no dash lights

Just bought a 89 300se, really nice car, low mileage and runs great but have no dash lights, checked all the bulbs that I could reach, all good, fuses are all good, noticed vacuum lines on rheostat?? any ideas anyone?
Didn't realize trip meter reset button is also dimmer for dash lights, not sure
how I thought vacuum was going to have much to do with lights!! Anyway, vacuum line spigot is broken off of rotary dial just below headlight switch, have plugged the line, still not sure what it does, unless it is for aiming headlights??
