I would assume that your assumption is correct.

lol
people just don't have a sense of humor now days...


check your HVAC control panel
it could be anything from your **** being stripped out or cracked, or you just have a bad switch on the panel...

even could be a bad relay...

go through with a voltmeter and check the circuit

I have a 2006 Ranger, mine does the exact same thing. It was driving me nuts so I replaced the switch. No luck. I finally decided that it was supposed to work that way...I would like to know for sure.

Thank you. Checked it out yesterday and that is how it worked.
Wife took the truck last Friday and I was trying to blame it on her. No luck I guess I'll have to find something else to make me mad at her. LOL
