I purchased a 1999 Hyundai Elantra and it had existing electrical issues....the one I'm having a problem with is the radio coming on "when it wants to" - my battery has drained multiple times which may have something to do with it, but since I don't use the radio much anyway, I just assume pull the fuse.

I can't seem to locate where the fuse is for the radio - I don't care if it affects the clock or not (I have a cell phone to check time), so if someone could tell me where to look, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

Is this a Factory (Hyundai) radio? If it is, It doesn't get turned on without the Key in Accessory or Run. If its Aftermarket, Its the way it was wired up.

It is factory, so maybe it's something else affecting my battery....seems odd that it just turns on randomly when I'm driving - thanks!

I know on my 13 Coupe, The Radio Turns on when I turn the Key to Acc or Run. From a Shut Off. I don't know if the 99 has the same feature?? If it does, I would Assume the Ignition Switch. Not the Lock Cylinder. The Electrical Switch connected to it. Or maybe a bad On/Off button on the radio. Anyone with a 99 model verify this? The Radio on with Key in Acc or Run.


The Fuse should be a Red 10A located under the Dash. That one is powered by the Ignition Switch. There is also one under the hood. Has Constant Power. 10A.

so in the relay box (under the hood), it's ok to pull the 10A fuse? I am assuming you're referring to the relay box on my vehicle.

Yes. I have a Haynes Manual. Doesn't show me if anything else is on that Fuse.
