Bernie inn Thanks for all of the help guys. So I've now got the sound working on everything except the tuner, that is completely silent not even white noise, antenna is working fine on the original head unit, so I'm guessing that the head unit is broken, unless the santa Fe has a power antenna? Does anybody know if this is the case?

Bernie inn Hi all, I have just attempted to replace my stock stereo with a Sony wx - GT90BT I bought the iso adaptors from aerpro which I connected up, everything works apart from the sound I understand this is probably due to the factory amp but I have no idea what to do to fix it, the iso from the stereo has a spare blue and white wire with power antenna written on it, should this be connected to anything? I'm based in Australia and the car is a 2008 2.2L CRDI Elite

John Arthur Hi all,
I just replaced my head unit and everything went fine. Unfortunately the rear entertainment system is giving me the error "no connection to front seats" and will not allow me to change the source (use the aux inputs). Has anyone run into this problem? I will also mention that I was not having this problem initially. Thanks.

peter9505 From what I can tell it's either or the blue wire at the BCM under driver's dash and the #2 wire in the red 20-pin plug under passenger's dash.

peter9505 Of course by signal I mean the power to the rear headlights.

peter9505 I'll be installing a new android 5.1.1 head unit in my 2012 and after skimming through this thread I read that the back up signal can be tapped into at the dimming rear-view mirror. I was just wondering if anyone had found the correct wire closer to the dash so that I don't have to do all the wire tucking from the mirror. Thanks

I've looked into this as well, and found this, I think this is what you're looking for, there are some PNs see these links:
Used 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Radio Audio |

I considered going this way, but for the price which is outrageous for a standard unit, I'd rather switch to an after market.

The one I have now has no NAV or rear camera, and the BT sucks; when I use my cell with maps (connected via BT) and I'm listening to the radio, it won't interrupt the radio when there are voice directions. I need to put it to the PHONE setting. It does interrupt for calls, but that's it - very poor design in my opinion.

SeattleJeff Hi all,
I figured I'd add my recent experience in replacing my in-dash stereo with a unit that has more features. The stock unit in my 20080 has the simple AM/FM/CD setup and I wanted to go all out.

I purchased three different rear cameras to pick from;
one that mounts on the license plate.
one that mounts into the license plate light.
one that mounts directly to the plastic trim piece above the license plate. (I ended up using this one.)

The reason I picked that one was that I could mount the camera dead center of the hatch and all of the wires would be hidden. The camera I used is also chrome - which blends into the rear rather nicely. (I'll post pictures when everything is complete.)

The stereo I purchased was a 2GB Android unit running 5.1.1 OS.
If you were to search on Amazon for JOYING 7" Newest Android Car Stereo 2GB RAM 32GB ROM Android 5.1 Head Unit Quad Core 1024x600 Double 2 Din Touch you would find it.
It has AM/FM (no CD) - 7" touch screen, Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, Rear camera, and more features to look-up on Amazon.
I had to customize a mounting kit to make it fit - as the stereo appears to be slightly larger than double din sized.
Also, two last pieces I'm working on is running the video cable from the rear hatch to the stereo, and connecting the steering wheel controls. The 15 foot cable from camera to dash appears to get a decent amount of interference and it's currently just strung through the passenger compartment, I'm pretty sure it will only get worse running tucked behind interior panels. The steering wheel controls appear to be pretty straight-forward. The stereo has a "key1 and key2" wire, both of which are to be connected to the stereo wires. Disclaimer - the "Scosche Radio Wiring Harness for 2007-Up Hyundai Santa Fe Harness" I purchased does NOT include all wires needed. It took being a little creative to the wires to use for the steering wheel controls (and the results are still pending.)

I'll update this post, or just again with pictures when everything is complete - with a list of part numbers.

chezdan9 Howdy everybody - I just installed an aftermarket radio in my 2007 Santa Fe Limited. Everything works great except the backup camera! I got the 12v power from the backup lamps in the tailgate, and took the 12v reverse signal from the red connector (pin 2) behind the passenger kick panel.

When I put the car in reverse, I get a signal and video. HOWEVER, when I step on the brake, the signal goes away and then comes back when I take my foot off the brake.

Any clues as to where I went wrong? I'm thinking of just wiring the power and reverse signal together and taking both from the reverse lamp.

Any help or insights would be appreciated!
