connector fits the following JVC Car Radio/CD/MP3 Players with

All wires are labeled. Hope this helps....................sodeep
Hello claude_bouth,You need a vehicle specific aftermarket connector generally called a "wiring harness". Your JVC came with a plug that fits the back of the receiver with "pigtail" wires which you splice to the harness wires. http://www.SonicElectronix.com sells the Metra 70-7301 which appears to be the correct harness for your Elantra.You can tap into the wiring of the car harness and splice the wires by function into the appropriate car wires, but using the aftermarket vehicle specific wiring harness is a lot easier and you don't need to disturb the vehicle wiring in any way, just plug into it. It also makes it possible to re-install the factory radio if you ever need to do so. If you choose to tap and splice, you can find your Elantra's wiring color code at http://www.modifiedlife.com.Hope this helps.
As a sanity check run a temporary wire directly from the battery positive to the radio. Twist the red and yellow wires together and connect it to the wire from the battery. If this works either your red or yellow wire connection under the dash or to the harness is not hot like you think. Yellow usually goes to a constant 12 volt source (to keep radio memory) and the red wire to 12volts when the ignition is on. In some radios this is reversed. The test I mentioned will determin if the problem is in the wiring or the radio.
I had some two conductor wire, which is used generally for alarms or for low voltage items, umm what i would recommend is you can use some of the two con for the Purple positive on your harness, but get something a bit thicker in gauge for the Yellow battery, use something more that would accutaly hold better power that you can use in terms of powering items, you should be able to get away with using something like that sorry if this isnt too much help, best bet is using alternative wires, otherwise try a Radio Shack they might have a Radio Harness or even bestbuy
