interior lights and vacuum

still putting pieces on my wagon, and remembered today that i had no instument lights prior to taking on the body work project, i figured it was just a blown fuse but they are all good. i have no instument lights at all when turning on the headlights..gauges and trouble lights all work.. but no illumintaion lights..not even in the center console area? any ideas? any hidden fuses? im going to check the dimmer switch next..
also, this may be asked towards the euro guys out there (i have done a search, but looks like i may have differant system?) by the brake booster is the series of vac goes to a splitter..seems to act as a one way valve. i have isolated the solid yellow line as the central locks..but the yellow w/ black strip seems to go in and up above the dash area where i lose it? cant seem to figure out where that one goes? i do not have any climate control in the euro wagon..could it feed the storage tank in the rear? whatever it is, it is one of my vacuum leaks, cap its feed and my locks work..thanks Rob

ok follow up, im confused!!! ok there is a dial switch on my scenter console next to my rear defrost, i thought it was a interior light dimmer.i pulled it out and it has vacuum lines on this car had adjustable headlights?? i look closer to the back of the headlights and sure enough vacuum lines..BUT!! not connected to the headlight buckets, and i dont see any place for them to be connected..sooo the headlighst that are in my car now are US spec? and the correct ones are the larger solid square faced ones? are they available so that i can hook the vacuum system back up?or too much money..i assume this is where my yellow and black line is going??? someone help w/ this confusion please? i posted pics of my headlights earlier today Rob
thanks..yea i figure ill just block them off for the time being..maybe if i run across a set, i like the looks of my headlights now..
the yellow/black line? i have no cuise control..wasnt there from the beginning..any other ideas? Rob
