Does the car have the guide matic headlight system?

Yes

Rotate the knob on the dash eye to the off position and see if the high beams go off with the foot selector.

If not, disconnect the 3 pin connector at the guide matic relay under the dash by the steering column, and route that wire harness to the dimmer switch. Plug in the rerouted wire harness to the dimmer switch.  You have just now disconnected the guide matic system from the cars headlight system.

Halogen lights use more power. So best is to use a relay and take the current straight from the battery.

This drawing should help you on your way if you don't have one available:

I sell the relay wire harness for 70.00  but you need to figure out why the high beams are staying on first.
