Am I mistaken or should ask the www.hyundaiusa.com please advice.
I have a 2004 Elantra GT and the cd player has recently started skipping. I bought a cd head cleaner and ran it through, but it is still skipping. Has anyone else had problems with this? I'm not sure if this is covered under the warranty or not.

Unscrew the Hyundai stereo from the brackets and replace it with the aftermarket stereo. Most aftermarket stereos come with a face plate and a trim bezel. The bezel usually doesn't fit, just leave it off. The new stereo will probably have several holes in the side to attach it to the brackets; use one that is halfway down from top to bottom, and make sure the bin sticks out farther than the new stereo (without the faceplate on). If the stereo chassis sticks out farther than the bin,
For the electrical hookups, most aftermarket stereos are color coded. There is an adapter harness you can buy that plugs into the car's wiring and you splice to the stereo, matching the colors. I made a little chart showing the colors. If you have the adapter harness, the only colors you need to worry about are in the right hand column.
One thing that messes people up are the illumination leads. Generally you don't need to hook those up at all, and if you do it can lead to problems depending on how they are hooked up.
Now, I wonder how it will work if the dealership's service dept installs it.
I've done several DIYs for other forums. The ones I've written I can transfer over. There are other's I've referenced that are written by others; would it be okay to link to those sites (since I don't feel comfy copying someone else's work)?
Here are the owner manuals online:

EZ-500H3 for 2006
That would be great!

The best way to do that would be to write a guide with some "guide stuff" in it and include other links as you go. You wouldn't be able to write a guide that was nothing but link(s) elsewhere.
Let us know when you get some posted!
So far as I can tell, you can only scroll through channels in the installed XM radio. But most XM radios have three levels of detail -- Channel, Program (i.e., what's on this hour), and Detail. For example, if you are watching an MLB baseball game you will see:
Channel: 179 -- MLB Baseball
Program: Braves vs. Nationals
Detail: 2-0, Top 3rd, 1 out
With a normal XM radio you can set the radio to show the "Program" level and scroll through all the baseball games. But on the Elantra you have to scroll through Channel -- which gives you no detail -- and stop at every channel, then hit the info button to see more about the program. A real pain in the butt.
Does anyone know a way to set the XM to scroll through other levels of detail? It is possible I am missing something, but I have tried everything I could think of.
We just bought the Elantra GLS, preferred package with the XM option. Wondering what the cost is for subscribing to XM radio nowadays?
To reinstall it, it helps to remove the little piece of triangular trim by the rear view mirror; otherwise it's just the opposite of taking it off.
With the trim off, you should have easy access to the speakers.
To replace rear speakers, click here if you have a sedan or if you have a hatch, fold the seat back down and remove the rear speaker trim by loosening the two bolts visible from the cargo area:
And the bolt and screw in the rear seat area:
Then pull the piece up and toward the middle of the car. There will be a slot to slide the seat belt out.
Speaker size, I think, is 6-3/4" in the doors, 6-3/4" in the rears on the hatch version (6-1/2" can work for 6-3/4"), and 6" x 9" for the rears on the sedan.
This is a real long shot, but it's free. Many people have had success in getting "stuck" CD players to work by disconnecting the negative battery cable for a few minutes. The theory is that you can reboot or reset the unit this way. May be worth a try for your tape deck as well.
You'll lose your radio security code doing this (if you have one), so make sure you know what the code is. You'll also lose any adaptive settings so your Elantra may feel like it's driving a bit differently for a few miles or so until it relearns how you drive.

I tried to change the fuse but found it difficult to remove the fuse w/my fat little fingers. Any suggestion on how I can do this myself???
I have programmed stations into the first 2 banks of presets (6 in XM1, 6 in XM2).
I normally leave it on bank 1 and then use the steering wheel preset Up/Down control to switch between the individual stations.
Most of the time, when I use it, it properly moves between the presets.
However, sometimes, when I hit up or down (say I'm on preset 4 and press up), it goes back to preset 1 instead of the right preset (in this example, 5).
I have narrowed it down for sure to doing this IF I have hit the button when the info screen is showing "Category" instead of the station number/song title/artist.
Is this by design? If so it doesn't make sense. Does it do this on anyone elses?
Also, there have been 2 times where I have gotten in the car and it's been back on the first channel, the demo one, that is not in any of my presets on that bank. I haven't figured out why this is occuring either. Is it a loss of signal from XM due to my garage causing it?
