Sldghamr, you dont need it where you are anyway. Just unplug it and forget about it. I unplugged mine up here in norcal and I know it gets colder up here than in Santa Rosa

Soon to come: Turbo, intercooler, Stage 1's, big oil sys., gear vendor over/under to get the mpg's up and to go with the new trans, STACKS ARE ON! ( luckily my brother is a master diesel mechanic- if he can't fix it, it ain't broke)

the one not to far I think will split off and go to something els also (I would have to look at mine to be sure) but if you wiggle and jiggle the plug it will eventually come out. you could even pry it a little with something as you should not need to hook it back up.

i can't see far enough to make sure that it is a "white" plug.
