My 69 had three control knobs under the dash near the steering wheel .I'd make sure they are set correctly .On my 69 the headlights we're vacuum operated .I'd check the vacuum lines.

It takes engine vacuum to draw them down so I'd guess you have a hose that is either leaking or has become disconnected. As the hoses plug onto oval-shaped nipples on the valve they often come undone. The valve is located underside of the nose just in front of the hood. Also make sure the switch under your steering column hasn't been pulled.
