If you've narrowed it down that far, it sounds like either a headlight relay (not all vehicles have them, but some do) or the switch itself. It would be worth getting a Haynes manual at this point (they're about $19 at a parts store) - that'll show you locations of any relays as well as wiring diagrams and how to disassemble a lot of the vehicle, in the event you have to replace the switch itself.

My dim headlights went out. What can I do? Has anyone else experienced this problem?

For more than a decade, GM used wiring for the headlights that barely met the amperage requirements for stock headlights. When owners replaced stock headlights with upgrades, the wires would simply fry.
The only real solution is to run NEW 10AWG (or 8AWG) wires from the headlight switch (or automatic headlight relay) all the way to the headlight connectors. (You can follow the extant routing of wires.) Best of luck to you!

Headlights went out on a 98 ford escort while driving

if both headlights went out at the same time, check your fuses. because high beams use more power than headlights, they are often on a separate fuse. if fuses are fine, replace the headlights.

Headlights only work when car is in gear

If you are stating the headlights only work while in gear (during the day or night) then they are your daytime running lights. Don;t know if you vehicle has automatic headlights or a manual switch. If you are stating you turn the headlights on and they only illuminate while in gear then there are other issues. Let me know

your auto headlamps are operated from a photo (light) sensor on the dash.-thats where you start and end, just replace the $800, they were gonna rob you blind!
