Okay, this is pretty simple. There are three wires:
1. Pink - Goes to your ignition circuit - provides power to the module when the ignition switch is in the ON position this wire should also have an inline fuse .
2. Yellow - this one goes to the headlamp low-beam circuit on your vehicle - provides power to the healamps any time the ignition switch is on and the headlamp switch is off.
3. Blue - this one goes to your park/marker lamp circuit - signals the module that the headlamp switch has been turned on and cuts power from the yellow wire so headlamps can operate normally.

Your car should work very well with this:
Go to the engine compartment fuse and relay box. Here you will find fuses for the low beam headlamps and the high beam headlamps. There are fuses for the left and right sides. Don't worry about whether you are working with the left or the right, because both of these fuses get their power from the low beam relay - it splits beyween left and right after the relay. If you power one of these fuses, you will power them both. The yellow wire can connect either to the fuse itself (with a fuse tap) or you can splice into the low beam headlamp wiring as it comes out of the fuse block. Where the ER FRONT harness plugs in to the fuse block the headlamp circuits are GREEN for the high beam and YELLOW for the low beam. Look for Pins 16 and 17. (These will be the easiest to identify because they are right next to each other) Pin 16 should be GREEN and Pin 17 will be YELLOW. The YELLOW wire from the DRL module connects to the YELLOW wire at Pin 17.

Next is the PINK wire on the DRL. On the same connector (ER FRONT) at the fuse block, Pin #11 should have two wires: a RED/BLACK wire and a PINK wire. Splice the PINK wire from the DRL to the PINK wire that comes out of this connector. - this wire is only hot with the key in the ON position.

The BLUE wire on the DRL wil have to connect to either the left or right side marker lamp circuit. The easiest place to do this would be at the headlamp assembly. The marker circuits will be a GREEN/ORANGE wire at the left headlamp assembly, or you can go to the PINK wire at the right headlamp assembly. (The left side would probably be the easiest.) It is important to hook to one of these wires and not one of the turn signal or headlamp circuits. It will not function properly if you do this.
If you hook to a headlamp circuit, it won't work at all and if you hook to the turn signal it will cause your headlamps to flash off every time the turn signal flashes on.

Turn the ignition switch on, and you should have DRL headlamps. Check the function of all of your lights after installation, including the high- beams and turn signal - just to make sure it is wired correctly.

    I should have said: connect the PINK wire from the DRL to either the RED/BLACK wire or the PINK wire at pin #11, whichever is the largest gauge wire. If they are both the same, or if the PINK wire is larger, I would wire it to the PINK wire just so it matches the DRL wire...But if the RED/BLACK wire is a lrger wire, I would hook to it...just so we don't end up with any overload issues.

Hey Dennis my 2001 Hyundai Elantra its rear brake lights are not coming on but the taillights work. The brake light in the window comes on when I push the brakes, just the rear brake lights don't come...

Fuses 6 and 7 in the passenger compartment junction block feed power to the taillights but the setting of the multifunction switch is appplied to the ETACS/TACS control module to control taillight relay operation and either of these components could be at fault. If you have DRL, the DRL module could be defective.

sounds like the transmission fluid level is incorrect. Follow the instructions in the owner's manual. You'll need a funnel, rags, and Hyundai transmission fluid ($15 a litre in Canada)
