Does the car have DRL ? daytime running lamps Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits using voltage drop testing . Do you know how to use a DMM - digital multimeter ? How to read an use a wiring diagram to find testing points in an electrical circuit ? IF not you probably won't be able to find the problem .

Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia
You will need wiring diagrams http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on headlamps . Click the search button then the blue links . Check B+ voltage to the fuse's ,check the headlamp relay in the left insturment panel junction block . Do you know where that is ? Your owners manual should say .

First check the bulbs, If the bulbs are o.k. It might be the dimmer switch. I think on a 2000 monte the dimmer switch is built into the multi-function switch.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.
