Dashboard lighting turn on/off when ignition turned on/off?

Asked by Sep 10, 2015 at 07:49 PM about the 2009 Volkswagen Beetle S

Question type: General

2009 VW New Beetle S:  Granddaughter recently bought nice one (dealer
certified) but are dash lights supposed to go on/off with ignition? I got to drive
it yesterday during the day and could barely make out odometer area or radio
screen.  She said they go on in evening when she turns on headlights.  Hard
to believe dashboard lights comply only with headlights.  Is my concern valid?
