Default Outside air without airconditioning?

2009 Ranger. Can't pull outside air without it being either heated or airconditioned, even when the switch is on neither option. Dealer at first said I was mistaken, but the tach shows a drop every time the switch is moved to any of the directional options, and the incoming air is definitely cooler than the outside ambient temperature. Then he said the truck is designed that way. But if so, why is there an AC spot on the dial (in addition to the Max AC spot) ? I live in a moderate climate and most of the time need neither AC nor heated air, but I do like fresh air. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide. Roddy

2 get outside air wouldn't you just switch it to the one circled in red? then select how cool or hot you want it on the other dial?

You're right! When I put the control in that single position, I get only outside air, not airconditioned air (as it does when I put it on any of the other ikons). Thanks! The owner's manual (page 42) doesn't make this distinction. On that page, all of the ikons have the exact same wording except for a couple of words to specify which vent the air will flow from. Nothing about any of the vents being AC specific or non-specific. Even the dealer is unaware -- but I'll give him a call. Again, thanks!

I either have the air on or windows down

anything above 92 windows up air on

If I am on the high way I try to keep off the MAX A/C
