I might be crazy, but.....

Hey Folks,

I have a 2011 Liberty with about 50,000 miles.

Now, before I start, I would like to say that I honestly don't know if it has always done this or if it should do this. This morning, I went to warm it up. I put the heat all the way up and put the control dial on defrost as per normal. When i was driving to work, I switched the control knob to the floor vents only setting and noticed that air was still coming out the defrost vents.

So when I stopped at work, I did some testing. Here is what i found:

control knob on defrost setting-> air comes out defrost vents only
control knob on defrost/ floor mix setting-> air comes out defrost and floor vents only
control knob on floor vents only-> air comes out defrost and floor vents only
control knob on dash/ floor mix setting-> air comes out dash and floor vents only
control knob on dash vents only-> air comes out dash vents only

So everything seems to be working just fine except the the floor vents only setting. Anyone have any ideas on this?

I have this issue too, I have to turn off my air wait 3 seconds turn the dial to feet and then turn air back on...I'm not a genius in the HVAC of a vehicle but I think the air is just stronger than the selector-switch-motor-thingy and yeah... haha

Not to thread hijack but Its on the premise of being crazy. My rear wiper sometimes doesn't shut off when I turn it off. Sometimes I have to turn it on and then off to get it t stop.
