No problem there, the way you describe it. It's normal, if you did not turn the key all the way to accessory.

The Rams do a self check
when you turn the key only to on, or even start it, all the lights should come on in the EVIC
When the self check is doing its thing, the lights will go off 1 at a time

If a light stays on, the message light will come on, then you use the up down steering wheel button to scroll down to Message then hit right arrow ---> & the message will show up

only on when the key is one turn away from ignition. isnt on while the truck is driving, also not on when remote started and there is no key in at all.
