Head light switch or high/low beam switch.

There is no fuse for the head lights. There is a circuit breaker built into the head light switch.

I checked and I have no power on the yellow to the dimmer switch that wire comes from the headlight switch so I’m thinking headlight switch is the issue I also have no signal lights the signal indicators on the dash come on but no blinking

I would be testing for power from the the switch end of your yellow wire then the supply side of the switch, then switch side of the fuse until you find power then rectify the fault should get your headlights working.
Similar procedure should sort the turn signal issue as well.
