When you say that you checked the dimmer, what exactly did you do? It sounds like you have a dimmer switch turned down

Okay I replaced the headlight switch and dimmer switch I have the dimmer all they way up and that doesn't make them brighter

That's what it sounded like from your description, but I wanted to make sure. Am I reading correctly that this is an intermittent condition or is it all the time now?
