Hi, since I have gotten my car I have not been able to figure out what the hel this light is for. It is a little red light inbetween my hazzard & defrost button. I think It might have been a shift light or vtec light, but it doesnt work.
That is not stock. There's not supposed to be anything there so no one is really going to know what it is. Could be alot of things, I guess whatever the previous owner decided to install it for maybe you should ask. If the car has an alarm and it blinks when is armed, then that's a good bet what it is.
Actually, it probably is stock. Many of the GS-R's that I have seen have this light. I believe that is is for the alarm. I am not sure why some have it and some don't. Am curious to know if anyone knows for sure what it is!
It's usually for an alarm, but even a stock alarm isn't technically "stock" because it is added afterwards at the dealer and not at the Honda factory. So you won't find any info about it in any service manual. Each dealer just contracts their own alarm company so the company can just decide to put an light there or somewhere else.
I have an LED by the shifter too... but it's not used for anything and never lights. Strange, isn't it. The LED for the alarm is up behind the dash on the driver's side... I never did figure out what the shifter one was for.
