1969 Rally Sport Headlight Problem

I recently have had trouble with the hideaway lights for my 69 RS. It is still a regular vacuum system to open and close the headlight doors. For some reason the doors no longer want to close. The vacuum pressure wants to keep the doors pulled open even when the headlights are not on. Any ideas or suggestions?

Make sure the override switch isn't thrown. Then I'd look at the Vacuum Relay (where the override is located) as it's the common point for the open and close feeds.

Found the problem. One of the hoses coming out of the firewall had cracked and unplugged. The doors are working good now. Thanks for the help.
