Cool Instrument Light Question

Why on my 08 Prerunner are the instrument lights on full time. I dont like it because its almost distracting to have orange lights in my face all the time. I can turn them off with the dimmer but then I have to find the dimmer in the dark to turn them back on at night. I do not have the auto feature so there is no sensor problem if this is normal or not please tell me.

you can add an on/off switch to dimmer, so you can just turn em off during the day, and back on at night. Really simple fix i guess, and use one of the blank slots on the left for the switch.
