You didn't mention a problem.
I had this same problem when I first got my 94 beretta. To switch from your regular lights to brights, you have to pull the turning signal lever towards you to switch between normal and brights.
look where the turn signal switch is and pull it back towards the steering wheel, that turns on the brights
I would first make sure the lamps are the correct ones for your vehicle.
I also own a 97 Ram 1500. Recently my headlights would go out when I tilted the steering wheel into the down position. I replaced the multi-switch (wipers, brights, turn signal) and the problem was solved.
Hazard lights are on the right bottom side of the steering column. The brights are on the left side control switch attached to the steering column, simply pull towards you instead of up or down for directional lights. On the far left side of the dash board are the parking lights and regular headlights that you push on the top to activate and push down on the bottom to turn off the lights.
Check to see if the foglight switch is on. Brights (high-beams) are automatically disengaged when fog lights are being used.
the lights that arnt your brights, the main ones that come on when you turn your lights on, usually dual stage but sometimes are not
There is a headlight out. The brights are sometimes a different bulb than the lowbeams.
You need to replace the bulb in your lights. The dim lights and bright lights have different bulbs.
i would say that your dimmer switch is probably broken
