I've also ordered my hitch from etrailers and purchased the Hyundai electrical Harness from a local dealership (part# 00262-71003) $96.65... I've just found that the instructions for the installation of the wiring corresponds to the 2001-2002 santa fe.
Does the part number corresponds to the same you purchased?
Does anybody know if there's difference in older models and 2007 wiring?
Do you have some pictures of the cable installation for 2007?

On the 07, You just plug in the 2 existing plugs (on the car) to the harness and route the wires. if you are talking about the crimp on wiring harness...I do not know. The part#'s sure are different.
I would follow the instructions that came with the harness if it matches your SF. If it is not the plug in type, I would check with the dealer too since i am unfamiliar with any of them except the 07.

I wouldn't use that generic "Hyundai Wiring Harness", because there is a specific plug-in harness for the 2007 Santa Fe. It simply plugs into the connectors that are under the body just behind the left rear wheel of your Santa Fe.
Here's a post I made in another thread:
"Hyundai has finally released a plug-in trailer wiring harness for the 07 Santa Fe. It is part number U8612-2B000. It's so new that my dealer didn't know it existed, and tried to tell me it didn't. They wanted to sell me part number U8614-2B000, which requires splicing. I told them to check with Hyundai, which they did, and surprise! I was right. The computer showed it in-stock in the warehouse, so I should have it in a few days. Retail price is $81.61."
I bought mine from Morrie's Hyundai in Minnetonka, Minnesota. It took them two days to get it. I installed it myself in about 15 minutes."

My story is very similar to kdahlquist's. I was very close to buying a RAV4 but ended up going for a SF Limited AWD. I just felt I was getting some much more car for the $$$. I loved the V6 in the RAV4 and was impressed with the fuel economy, but the interior looked & felt so cheap. In comparison, the SF Limited felt absolutely luxurious, and offered a much quieter ride.
I've had my SF for 6 weeks now and have put over 4,000 miles on it (including a 3,000mi road trip through the Rockies) and I have no regrets with my purchase. It's an incredibly comfortable car with loads of useful features. It's easy to drive around town and great on long trips.

Thanks for the info, I went to the dealer yesterday and they assured that the wiring has not changed... I'll insist to order the new 2007 harness.

Caution is indicated. My dealer said it did change (HE PERSONALLY CHECKED) and that was the reason the PLUG AND PLAY harness for the 2007 did not appear until a few months ago.
I think he may have been talking about the crimp on connector that POSSIBLY did not change!!!!. Just my guess.
The 07 PLUG and PLAY harness was the source of much consternation on this forum, and another member posted the correct part#'s for the 2007 models!
1st step is to locate the plugs on the car (07 they are under the driver's side fender well - REAR!....then make sure the new harness plugs match with the car....there are caps on the car end which must come off ist.
You can always call HyundaiUSA to confirm the correct part#. I would not leave with the part until you open it and make sure it is correct...something just feels wrong here! I wopuld not just take the dealer's word for it...in fact he probably had your year or similar on his lot...do a comparison!
let us know

" went to the dealer yesterday and they assured that the wiring has not changed... I'll insist to order the new 2007 harness."
Most dealers don't seem to know about the plug-in harness for 2007+ Santa Fes. Make sure you have them order part number U8612-2B000. Write that part number down and take it in with you. They'll likely tell you it's the wrong part number and isn't in their catalog. Have them punch it into the computer, anyway. It will come up, and the suggested retail is $81.61. They can have it from Hyundai within a few days. If they give you any grief, tell them you will call Hyundai direct and complain about them.
My dealership didn't know about it until I told them about it. When they ordered one for me, the service manager asked if he could open it and show it to the techs, because none of them had ever seen it before.

I'm trying to find my radio ID for XM. I want to sign up to XM's online site. I just got my car 3 weeks ago and XM was included for 3 months. I don't have channel 0 and channel 1 is just XM promotions. They said that I would find my radio ID on either of those 2 channnels and I don't. Anyone have the same problem? Thanks.....

XM radio ID is on channel 000. Access it by holding the seek button until the channel comes up.

Yup. It's only accessible by using the seek button.
