    Hey guys, I thought I saw something about this not too long ago but I can't seem to find the thread. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Confused... meaning it won't stay closed when? When the air is blowing? Driving down the road? High/low/off?

    It just started doing it tonight. The fresh air vent just won't stay close with everything off. Fan off, Temp to the cool side and not on a/c. I press the button, it closes for a while but yet re-opens itself on its own and it never did that before. It should remain close. The fan, a/c and heater has nothing to do with the fresh air vent being close or not because everything can run with it either open or closed. I just thought I saw someone else post this problem on here.

    If you have the selector on "Defrost" or "Floor/Defrost", the re-circulate function is canceled by the ESC and the light in the button will go out.

    It's actually on the dash (1st selection) so I know its another defect with this truck. First the amp, then the radio, now this...

    It's really nice when the CD player comes on by itself when you're driving down the road half asleep.

    Talk about a rude awakening!
