There is no relay in the 1996 Dodge Ram, only a breaker in the power distribution box under the hood... Dodge uses basically the same headlight switch from the 60's through '98 when they realized that the 1 ton trucks (with extra lights and usually used for towing) were burning up the headlight switch, harness, etc... a very dangerous condition. When they changed truck styles in '94 and started using the high watt halogens, no thought was put into the extra current draw through a 40 year old switch design! Dodge's fix for the 1 ton trucks ONLY was recall #819. There is a lot of good information if you search for it, but basically the recall covers replacing the headlight switch (because the stock one is usually melted around terminals B1, B2, R, and H), replacing the connector (for the same reason) and installing a standard relay and harness for the running light circuit. I burned the switch out on my '96 2500 Ram (because I tow a lot) and Chrysler Corp basically said "too bad". I reported this potentially fatal issue to the NHTSA.
