I got GPS for Christmas so i plugged it in to Cigarette Lighter (never used as i don't smoke) and the charger didn't work. Looked in the manual to locate fuse box. found correct fuse, saw that it was broken (like broken filament in light bulb) and replaced with spare. It worked! [b]Unfortunately, now radio, clock, Overhead lights, power locks and alarm system don't work. I checked Audio fuse and changed it even tho it wasn't broken. I even bought new one from Pep Boys store just in case my spares were old and sick. No Good! Called Hyundai service this morning and said to try the [b]AMP fuse. I did, it wasn't broken, i changed it anyway but still NO Good!

Am i checking the correct fuses? I don't want to cause any more damage. My elantra has been kept up and only has 80,000 miles on it. Also, the names on the fuse diagram aren't totally clear. Lastly, what's with the fuse box under the hood. I've looked but didn't see anything that may be a problem.

[b]Can someone direct me to the correct fuse to correct this problem? I called my mechanic but he's away on vacation. His business phone transferred me to his cell. He said the Owner's manual should tell me exactly what fuse to change. That's a laugh!

(Now i understand why i was given so much space to write my issue.)

Should be fuse #25 that needs replacing in the passenger compartment fuse box.

if #25 is Room LP, then i checked it and it's ok. If not, can't wait to check.

thank you for your suggestions.

Pull the #18 fuse and see if the other componenets act normal again. Also, you can always go through the fuses one-by-one rather than hunt around for a bad one.

my mechanic found the problem....it was the power connector....i had taken it out and must have put it back in bottom side up (it fit but it was wrong)......hopefully, this will help someone in the future.

83,000 members on here.....bring your sarcasm someplace else....i was just bringing closure to my problem and, possibly, helping someone else who may not know the value of that black connector that i screwed up. i put it in upside down and caused big problems....very easy to do! i pulled it out.....i looked at it....i put it back in....sometime later, radio didn't work.....never in a million years did i think that black connector caused the problem.....hopefully, another elantra user.....one who isn't a mechanic.....will learn from my mistake.
