:confused: I just got my Ridgeline today and it works great. I don't have the Navi system but I realized that beside the Home Link there is a little plastic mesh and it looks like a microphone. Can anybody tell me what this is? :confused:

Actually, according to the manual, that is where temp sensor is for the passenger side. The drivers side is underneath the steering column. Hope this helps, it drove me nuts as well, I asked my dealer, who I think may have a 4 year college degree in Honda vehicles. have a good one...
later,

Where are you seeing that about the passenger side temp sensor? According to the service manual there is only the one near the steering column. It uses a suction tube to draw air past the sensor. There certainly isn't anything similar up in the headlining. The only electrical connectors up there are for the maplights (also used for the dimming mirror and compass mirror) and for the navigation microphone. If the vehicle is not navi equipped, the grill is redundant.

If your dealer told you that he must be related to my dealer.

Lingered_I is right. A temperature sensor is under the steering column and a sun sensor is on the top-middle of the dash next to the windshield. Both are used for climate control. pg.130 Owners Manual.

I asked my dealer various questions about my Ridgeline on the delivery day and none were correct.

Thank you Honda for a comprehensive Owners Manual.

That one next to the windshield is the emmiter for the remote control.

This sounds familiar. They must have been trained at Radio Shack. 'You've got questions. We've got answers.' Wrong ones, but at least we've got answers for you. If you don't like the first answer, don't worry, we'll make up something new and different just for you!

That's the worst possible way to answer a customers question that you don't know the correct and accurate answer to. Those kind of sales people drive me nuts. I have a lot of respect and confidence in a salesperson that answers those kind of questions with "Gee, I don't know. Lets go find out."

I propose to all Ridgeline sales folks, that they have to graduate from the ROC Academy. They should spend a week studying the posts here.:)

Hey, I like it! Not very much BS gets past the ROC. If you want to know anything about the Ridgeline, this is the place to go.

My experience with RS has been more like 'You've got questions. We've got blank stares.'

Have to correct you - it's the sunlight sensor for the AC. The truck doesn't emit anything. The remote receiver is built into the door multiplex control unit which is part of the switch panel in the drivers door. As it's all radio based, no line of sight is required as would be with an infra-red system.

Uhmm, the sunlight sensor is ON the dash next to the windshield. I was referring to the grill openings next to the three homelink switches above the rearview mirror:)

No Shi*, For more entertainment, try asking a salesperson which part of the interior is leather and which is vinyl...........I hate the idiots who can't just say, "I don't know, lets find out".
