Hello,

I have a 2012 Kia Rio SI 5 Door hatch in Australia and i have a little LED light in the roof lining between the two front seats. It is always on.

Can someone advise what it is and the purpose and if it can be turned off.

Also has anyone here in Australia changed the Interior lights to LED and also installed HID lights. If so do you have a link for the Australian Kia's

Thanks

Kiwalian

We were told it is a "courtesy/mood" light. All it does is light up the centre console a little bit with indirect lighting. Evidently it is so you can take your eyes off the road and look down to see what gear you are in :)

Its a little detail that I really like. It makes the inside of the car look like there is moonlight in the cabin at night :)

I got my Rio yesterday and I also noticed it last night. As far as I can see it's just a light to illuminate the center console. Nifty as it lights it up just enough to be able to see your gear selection, but not enough as to annoy you at all. :)
