Heater Block power plugin??

Ok guys my 2005 6.0 doesn't like the cold and its gettin that time of year. i belive the 7.3s had the plug in the front bumper to plug to a power cord to warm the block at night.... Correct? i asked some one but i cant remember who if my 6.0 had one and he told me it did not have the actual plug but all the guts(wireing) is there. is that true and what do i need to complete it cause i belive it will help my baby when starting cold...

Man, this is sure coming up a lot.


It's there, and more than likely already has a cord on it. You just can't see it. They hid them very well. International put them in every motor. 05's and newer were destination based for the cords. Other wise they were an option.

Here is a link. Start looking above your starter to see if the cord is coming out of the heater. Then get a bright light and look behind the bumper near the passenger side fog light and tow hook. It's there. Zip tied, just waiting for you to unleash it's warming power!:

If you look above the starter and can't find the cord, here is the Cord part number at International: Z3500043

Or you can go to e-bay and do a search on them.

I've seen like $25-$30 bucks on e-bay.

So, you looked or felt just above the starter and it's not there? Bummer! Not sure what Ford sells them for.

Check this thread for some other places to buy from.

its an orange cord above the starter on pass side, mine was there bujt it was a pain to trace it but i evenutally found it, also depends on where your truck was bought, the "cold states" had it as a standard option to have a block heater. i found mine today and its plugged in right now. i just wanna make sure it works lol
