Block heater Cord

I heard most california trucks dont come with one, is this true? Or is it hidden in a wire bundle zip tied up somewhere.

If i dont have one, where do i get one? anywhere besides the dealer they probably want an arm and a leg.

Did you look to see if you had a plug?
Look behind the bumper where the passengerside tow hook sticks out there. Shoule be tied back behind there.

The only trucks that come standard is the 10 "cold" states. With an 06 you should have the heater already in the engine. It is above the starter if you lay under and reach up and over it. It is a threded piece with two prongs in it.

Other trucks it was a 35 dollar option on from Ford.

I picked my first cord up on eBay for about 20 shipped. I switched to one with a weather tight cover that mounted in my bumper. And kept the other for a spare.

Just check to make sure you don't have one first. Unless you know where your truck was built, it could have been a ND truck at one time...you didn't mention if you bought it new and where from so its easiest to just tell you where to look for the plug and it takes all of 30 seconds to check it out.

It may very well not have a cord for the heater then.

Yeah, Clay's right. I was meaning that if you done see a plug, reach up above the starter and check for it there.
