I was thinking about buying an 81 wagon. The dealer and I cant figure out how to activate the cyclops headlight in the grill.

Unless you are talking about the EA81, I believe that the cyclops came in 1982.

If memory serves, the "cyclops" headlight was in the manual considered a "passing light", there should be a "pass" symbol somewhere on one of the column sticks. Its been a while since I had mine, can't remember exactly.

Lower left dash, should be a blue button with an orange center. IIRC they only work either with or without the high beams on. Later, Tim

At a minimum the headlight switch needs to be turned on. If you press the button in and flip from hi to low beams you will see what position it lights up the switch in and know when its on.

Where exactly on the lower left dash? I have 2 factory holes that are deletions. Is it supposed to go in one of them? If so, which one? If not, where exactly does it mount? Thanks

My switch says "Center Lamp", I think?

If you can't see it behind the logo in the grill, you don't have one.
