    The dashlight dimmer is a rheostat - the knob to the left of the steering column.

    is that the only one?

    only wiring diagram i could find was for 88, showed the radio power going to a rheostat.

    trying to figure out power loss to radio.

    The OE radio has a bulb in the dash lighting circuit. It would go back to the rheostat. The main radio power comes through the ignition relay and should be 100% seperate from the dash lighting.
