I have a 2000 Accent that is shorting out somewhere on the turn signal wiring.

Failed troubleshooting:
- Removed turn signal relay
- unplugged turn signal switch
- Attempted to trace the wire(s) from the fuse box to the turn signal switch, BUT the wires entering the switch are a different color than at the fuse box:rolleyes:.

with both of these disconnected, as soon as I start the car the fuse burns (audible snap) with black soot and molten metal covering the inside of the fuse window.

* Its not a US car, so the hyundai owners website will not accept my VIN.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram that includes turn signal wiring?

Attached is for 2002 US cars, but I bet yours is similar.
No guarantee on wire colors as there were often differences in markets/years.

Here is the color code:
B Black
O Orange
Be Beige
P Pink
Br Brown
Pp Purple
G Green
R Red
Gr Gray
T Tawny
L Blue
W White
Lg Light Green
Y Yellow
Li Light Blue

There are 2 fuses; the Hazard switch selects which fuse is in use.

Are you saying that the fuse blows with the flasher relay removed?

Is it Fuse #1 that blows? Assume it is since only blows when car is started.
With Hazard switch in the OFF position, Fuse #1 dead-ends at the flasher relay (now unplugged).

Hmmmm. Mysterious.
Could be that the short is in the Hazard switch or the wire leading to it (pinched/abraded).

I'll see if I can dig up any more info.

I finally found the problem, the reverse light switch (manual trans) was shorting out. It had melted the connector on the wiring harness, but its still usable. I changed the switch and everything is working fine now. This was why the fuse was blowing with the flasher relay and turn signal switch disconnected, the fuse is for the reverse light switch and turn signals. If only I had known this years ago...

While looking for a short in the wiring harness, there seemed to be a lot of wear on the wiring bundle under the drivers door. I repaired a few wires that were shoring out but they were not the cause of the initial problem.
