    Does anybody know what the little blue light is actually for? And the
    area next to it that appears to be a speaker, what is that?

    And learn how to properly crosspost to similarly themed newsgroups.

    Exactly where is this "little blue light"?

    You do know your Owner's Manual will explain all this, don't you? I know
    it's just a boring ol' car book, but a read will help you out.

    I presume that when you bought the vehicle, it came with several booklets.
    One of them is the owner's manual. Go sit on the can, and read it cover
    to cover. You'll find tons of useful info in there...

    If the OP is female, as I suspect, this won't work. Women don't read in the
    can -- that's a guy thing. :)

    I've just had a look through the '07 CR-V Owner's Manual myself just now.
    There is a blizzard of description for the dashboard, but nothing by color,
    so I can't place that "blue light".

    If they don't, they should. Only quiet room in the house... ;-)
    Me neither. But I am sure that he/she will be able to tell by location...

    The blue light is just an interior accent light. It provides just a dim
    glow to your interior, its kind of nice because the light it emits is
    barely noticable but if you cover it up you will notice how much darker
    it gets in your console area. My civic has one as well.

    If you don't know the answer, why bother responding?

    I have read the manuals front to back, all they do is mention the
    courtesy light and show a drawing of more info than that.

    Thanks for nothing.

    Where is that light? There's a tremendous amount of stuff shown in the
    diagrams for the dashboard.

    It is above the rear view mirror in-between the vanity lights. Just a
    tiny blue light next to an area with small holes that looks like a
    speaker. The manual shows it, calls it a courtesy light and does not
    mention the speaker-like thingy at all.

    I think the problem here is that Honda appears not to have organized that
    page too well. The description for the Courtesy Light is on the NEXT page,
    not the page with the diagrams. (Page 121 in the on-line version of your

    I quote the description here:
    "The courtesy light between the
    spotlights comes on when you turn
    the parking lights on. To adjust its
    brightness, turn the Select/Reset
    knob on the instrument panel."

    As for the little grille, it appears to be just decoration. It may also be
    there for ventilation for the courtesy light, so the light doesn't get too
    hot (I'm guessing here).

    Oh, I read that. I just do not understand what they mean by "courtesy
    light". It is not bright enough (even turned up all the way) to do
    anything besides be a little blue light. I thought I might be missing
    something in the term "courtesy light".

    Thanks for the research, I appreciate it.

    A courtesy light is intended to provide just a little bit of illumination.

    Many cars have one in the bottoms of their doors, which are intended to
    provide a bit of illumination around the feet when getting in and out of
    the car.

    I think the blue one in your car is meant to provide some light so
    passengers aren't completely in the dark, but not so much the driver gets
