Have you check for power and ground at the headlight plug as this could be the problem even corroded connections or a broken wire inside the plug.this is the most common problem.you may have to follow the wiring back to find a bad section in the wiring loom,with either a test light or voltmeter.

If you replaced the bulb and are sure the new one is good, you have a wiring concern. First you need to be sure the terminals at the headlamp connector are making a tight connection. If this is good, check for a good ground at the black wire by using a test light with the clip connected to the positive battery terminal. Touch the test light to the black wire and it should light. If ground is good check for voltage, again using the test light but with the clip on the negative terminal. Test at the red/black wire for low beams or the light green/black wire for high beam. Low beams use 10 amp fuses #'s 25 and 31. High beam uses fuse # 30 and is 15 amp. If voltage or ground is not present and the fuse is good you need to trace the circuit and repair the wire.

Sounds like a short to me, also, if the dimmer is separate from the actual headlight switch you may want to try changing that.
