Key Turned to Aux

Maybe a stupid question, but when I turn the key to aux (i think that's what its called--opposite way of ignition) my radio comes on (normal) but also the climate control runs, including interior fans. Is this normal? In all my other vehicles only the radio would run, maybe the windows or wipers would work but never the climate controls. Thanks.

There are 4 different positions.

In order from counter clockwise to clockwise...

1. Radio.
2. Off.
3. Run.
4. Start.

Turn your key counter clockwise from the off position. At least this is how it is on my truck.

I just went and double checked again, and yah there is something definitely weird going on. When I turn my key to radio, the daytime running lights turn on, climate control turns on, radio and trailer brake control all turn on, very similar to the having the key in the run position but with out any dash startup lights (abs, check engine, airbag, etc) or any dinging. This is really quite annoying. The truck does have a remote start that was installed by the previous owner, so I don't know if they screwed something up.

I'll just about be willing to put money on the remote start causing your issues. I hate those things and LOVE to tear them out and let them hit the garbage can.

With regards to the remote start, I had read somewhere that the electronic climate control will not turn on unless the key is turned to run (which won't happen with the remote start), so they have to send power to the climate control all the time, with some sort of "turn-on" connected (similar to a car stereo amplifier. So when the key is turned to accessory, or the remote starters "brain" receives signal the climate control comes on...Does this make any sense? (I can't get a hold of the original installers to see what they actually did)

Reading your post above i was going to bet that there was a remote starter that is improperly installed that is causing your issue. I would take it to a shop and let them put the proper wires in the proper locations.

Nothing wrong with a remote starter that is properly installed by an MECP certified Installer. The problem is everyone who owns a set on lineman's pliers thinks they have what it takes to install them. And while they may work, as you can see from above, they may cause issues if not connected properly.
