Cord for block heater

I have a 06 PSD and I can't find a cord or a plug for my heater block. I have read that this was a option on this year but that 06 do come with heaters in them. Is this so and if so can anyone tell me how to put a cord on it?? Thanks

The plug should be there. It may not be equipt with the cord. Look on the passenger side of the block underneih back by the starter and you should see the heater where a freeze plug would otherwise go. If theres n ot a cord connected to it, you can buy one from International or NAPA.

It is hidden behind the tow hook. I had to look up between the bumper supports and the rest of the crap under there. It was zip tied up, and has a cover over the plug terminals to protect them from the elements. Hard to see, but like it is said above, if you have a cord running off the heater in the freeze plug, it it in this location. (or should have been at one point...)

My truck didn't have a cord either. But as people have stated they ALL have the block heater installed. Reach above the starter and you can feel the socket where you attach the cord. I bought my cord online also for like $16 i think. Ran it to the front, zip tied it a million places... and its working awesome. Doesn't necessarily mean the difference between the truck starting or not... but a HUGE difference in how well it starts and sounds at startup.

Ok after making myself go lay in the snow covered ground I crawled up under the truck and sure enough it does have the threaded end with what felt to be two prongs in the center no cord attached. So I am guessing I will call around and try to find a cord. From the feel of it I bet it is hard to fit a wrench up in that area huh.

The reason I was asking about this is because I have been having a hard time to start up these past few morning. Its been 0 or below counting the windchill. I did find out though that my battery on the passenger side was bad so I replaced it today I hope this will help with most of the problem. Thanks for all the help on finding this now if I can find a cord that dont cost me a arm and leg I will be doing good.
