#144 of 193 Towing package for 2004 4WD LX
Jun 04, 2009 (9:31 am)
I have a 2004 4WD Santa Fe LX and am wondering 1) did they have towing packages for this year and 2) if so, how can I tell if I have the proper towing package installed. Thanks!!
#145 of 193 How to tell if SF has towing package
Jun 05, 2009 (10:22 am)
I'm looking for an 07 or up Santa Fe SE or Limited. How can I verify if a particular vehicle I'm looking at has the trailer prep/towing package (better fans, trans cooler (is this a better cooler or is there none without this), larger radiator)?
The 09 brochure indicates that all SE's and Limiteds have the trailer prep package. Is it really that simple for the 07s and 08s?
Obviously I'd rather not trust the salesman/dealer. Did that once before and didn't get what I was told.

I have an 07 SF SE AWD wXM and have only made a quick cursory search, but was unable to locate any factory wiring on the drivers side wheel well. Good luck.

Hi. I need help with the wiring. I have a 2007 Santa Fe Limited. I used the etrailer 4 pole wiring. Since my 1998 Coleman camper has a 7 pole, I added the 4 to 7 pole adapter. Everything looked great, except I can only get the right and left turn lights to work on the camper. No running lights or brake lights. Any ideas? I am guessing it is something with a fuse? I appreciate an ideas/suggestions.

I would check to make sure you have a good ground connection, many times this is the primary reason for non working lights. Good luck.

I'm sure you ruled out a fuse problem. Your ground connection should be on a non painted, shiney surface. Use a continuity tester to be sure your getting power at the brake/running light connections. I would also connect the unconnected ground on the adapter to a shiney surface and see if that might be the problem.
If still not working I would double check the trailer lights for good ground and possible breaks in wire connections. You might also double check the Santa Fe harness connections for any loose or non contact wire problems where they tap in to the vehicle to be sure they're connected to the proper wires.

Thanks for the advise. I reseated the ground and my break lights on the camper started to work dimly. Then I used the emergency flashers and everything seemed to work fine. Flashers, breaks, turn signals all work fine now. Thanks again!

On a second more intensive search, I did find the connectors on the inside drivers side of the rear tire well. Yippeeee.
