Most likely both the new and old connectors will have a clip on them to keep the plug secure to the sensor. Using that clip as a reference point hold the two plugs next to each other. Then, using butt connectors and shrink tubing, splice the new connector onto the wiring harness. Splice one wire at a time going from left to right or right to left. Whichever is more comfortable for you. HTH. -Jim

oh forgot to say that the wires were loose that broke off that connector, so there is no order coming from the back of the engine. Thats why i dont know the order i repeat all the wires are loose.

In that case your local Hyundai Dealer's service department may be able to give you a picture of which wire goes where. If not, maybe a google search for how to replace the cam sensor on your type of car will show you a picture of the connector being unplugged. Then you can reconnect the wires according to the picture. HTH. -Jim

The same happened to me, 2000 Hyundai sonata. I need a camshaft sensor connector, I've checked all the las vegas junk yards and cannot find one and auto part stores. Auto parts tell me I have to buy the whole harness kit for 1200.00
