There are 3 possible answers I can think of right now. 1) Both bulbs need to be replaced. 2) Headlamp switch is bad. Since the headlamp relay is in the switch, same difference. 3) Body Control Module is not turning them on. Could need a reflash, or it may need to be replaced, and you don't want to see the price of that! There is a way to get headlamps by by-passing the headlamp switch, but it is a little involved unless you are familiar with how to do it.

I don't know about your Dodge but my Grand Am keeps the automatic headlights off until the parking brake is released. The manual switch works normally.
