K-5 no AF.S

My k-5 doesn't have AF.S.
I have a pentax lens and a Sigma lens. Neither shows AF.S.
Two of the switch positions show AF.C and the other position is M.
I have searched through the settings and manual and found no reason for this.
It was working at one time unless I am crazy (very possible).
Am I missing a setting?

The first position on the switch is AF.S, the second is AF.C.

Note that the K-5 does have custom functions (focus priority and release priority) that can change the behavior of both AF modes, i.e. release priority lets you release the shutter in AF.S even when the subject isn't in focus.

The camera will not go into AF.S mode. It will only allow AF.C or M even though
it stops at 3 positions on the switch.

What lens are you using? If it's a manual lens, when you turn the mode dial, unexpected things happen.
