Called the dealer and he is booked until the 20th. He said that he can't think of any reason why what I did would have caused the issue. He thinks it was just bad timing. It made me feel better anyway. He also could not think of a reason that it would be doing that. In the meantime, he told me to open the furnace compartment and disconnect the white molex plug from the board. That will disconnect the furnace but the AC should still run for now. We leave for the 4th of July camping on Thursday. Should not need the heat.

So I decided to do a little more digging. I opened the thermostat which looked fine. Nothing is burnt inside. I disconnected the white furnace wire and tried the air. Everything works fine. At this point I am guessing that it is the thermostat that maybe went bad. Picked up a new one on my way into work ($50) and will wire it up tonight. I can return it if this doesn't fix it because it is an electrical part but it is worth the gamble to me because I can replace it myself versus the shop labor rate of $75 per hour. I will let everyone know how it goes.

Yep. The new thermostat fixed the issue. Old one looks perfect but it still works wrong. Guess some logic circuit may be burnt internally. Thanks to all for help. Have a great 4th.
