Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
Pulling back on the dimmer switch is using the "flash to pass" feature common on most cars and trucks. You are putting power to the high beam circuit without using the headlight switch.
You would need to check for power in and out of the headlight switch for the headlight circuit, and then the dimmer switch. On models built after 1996 the headlight switch grounds the lights.

although the underhood relay panel is common, I'd check your headlamp bulbs first, these are cheaper than the fuse box. The daytime running lights work off the high beam circuit, thus, a blown highbeam bulb could be the culprit, the fusebox solution was more common on 2001 and up modles, although it's a definite possibility.

Check the headlight switch to make sure that the connections or internal connections aren't corroded. This was a major problem for older fords, so it would be good to check it anyway.

replace the bcm(body control module). chrysler has real problems with their electrical components. the bcm is also the big fuse block with all the fuses and relays. replace with used is fine but you will need to pull the old one out and MATCH the numbers.

disconnect the module that is mounted in front of the fuse box .Then carefully clean the the connectors ,they are usually pretty dirty.After they are clean put it back 2gether.If it doesnt solve the prob then u might have to stick some washers on your bottom screws so that your module is angled in.This will ensure a solid connection.
