dimmer switch problem

I have an '02 taurus ses, but I think any other model of the same generation will be the same. My brother didn't realize the dimmer switch on the left of the steering wheel was a little wheel and he smashed it in trying to press it in like a button. I can't seem to pull it back out and the problem I'm having is that it stuck the dome light on and killed my battery. I've managed to play with it enough to turn the dimmer switch off so the battery won't die. The problem is that at night or when it is raining and I have the headlights on my whole dashboard and clock and everything else is dark. If any one has any idea how to fix this without going to a dealer to get screwed over it would be awesome. Thanks.

Re: dimmer switch problem

You could replace the switch. Not too terribly hard.
