Ah, two block heaters?

So the other day I backed out with my truck plugged in, ripped off the male end of the block heater plug on what I thought was my block heater. Today I replaced the plug end and was tracing it back to make sure it was all good. When I was tracing it back I found another plug. So is it a possibility that I have two block heaters? Or is the other plug for something else. Sorry this might be a stupid question. Just curious.

Maybe your truck was built for the antarctic and the engine needs to be super warm lol.

The only way to know for certain is to follow both of them and see what they do. Somebody could have had an in-cab heater, or some sort of extra coolant/pan heater, or the original cord could have been roached and the lazy buggar never removed the old one.

Yeah my truck has two plugs. One in the grill and one on the driver side running board. The one in the grill is the original. When I was installing the new heater in 0 degree weather in the driveway and was drenched with coolant I got lazy and didn't remove it. Of course I have no excuse for not getting it done in the past nine months!
