Hello everyone!

I'm looking to upgrade the headlight assembly on my 2012 Elantra GL Sedan. I have come across a pair of original Hyundai headlights for a 2014-2016 Elantra sedan (non-projector, non-"Limited") with LED position lights.

I known the shape of the headlight assembly for the 2014-2016 Elantra sedan is the same as the 2011-2013. My question: is plug&play possible? Is the wiring/socket/etc. the same as for my 2012? Is there a different wiring diagram since it's got LED position lights?

My headlights for my 2012 Elantra GL:




The ones I'm looking to purchase:



Please answer only if you really know about this. Thank you!!<img id="hzDownscaled" style="position: absolute; top: -10000px;">

I could be wrong, but I don't think those have the LED Position lights. I thought those were only on the Limited or Sport versions and all those had projectors from what I researched.

I could be wrong and you may wish to dig a bit further on that if they are telling you they have the LED position lights.

As far as plug and play i that's a 50-50 shot. My guess if the harnesses that plug into the light assembly are different.

I know I didn't answer your question as you wanted, but I thought I would try and give you a heads up on those position lights. Good luck.

Yeah that's what I thought as well... you are probably right @broderp. I saw the ad for those headlights, asked the seller if the LEDs worked, he answered yes they do. Then I came here, posted my question, went back to the ad and it wasn't available anymore... probably a fake pair of headlights.

Thanks for the heads up :)

If anyone has the information regarding the compatibility between the headlights of the 11-13 and 14-16 models, please let me know if any of them are 100% plug&play.

The 2011-2013 have a 6 pin connector and the 2014-2016 have an 8 pin connector. Shark racing sells a 6 to 8 pin harness that will make it plug and play with no we're cutting required.

I've seen one or two people here in years past say that they had trouble getting the LED strips on the 2014-2016 projector models to work on the 2011-2013. No idea if they were using the shark racing harness or DIY wiring.
