Default No dash backlighting in DRL Mode

1998 S70 GLT.
The dash has no backlighting in DRL mode but does in the manual settings of Parking lights & Headlight settings.

Is the selector switch bad or is it something else?

Thanks.

Sounds good to me. I'd consider that a feature.

Why are you using DRL's at night instead of the normal headlights? DRL's only operate at 70% or so of normal power.......Use the regular headlights at night.
