i assume you checked the fuse?
sounds like either the headlight switch or the dimmer switch is shot. or both. try some junkyard switches- they are dirt cheap- and if that fixes it, go buy some new switches. if not, save the $$$ you woulda spent on switches you didn't need and figure out what's up with the wiring.
