block heater

Ok, well i went to work yesterday and didnt see my manager's 05 6.0 in the lot. I went inside and asked him where his truck was and he said it wouldnt start on such a cold morning. I keep telling him that he has a block heater on his truck but he swears he doesnt.
My question is that I have always heard that diesel trucks have block heaters from the factory, but if you dont order it, they kind of tuck it up in the bumper somewhere so you cannot find it. If this is true, does anyone know where it would be on my managers 05 f250 6.0?

Thanks for any replies
Sam

Some trucks did not come with the cord. The heater is installed but does not have the cord.

You can order the cord off the net for about 30 bucks at powerstrokeshop.com

Or you can get it from the dealer for about 80 bucks.

I think that they are installed on all the trucks, but in some climates they may not have a cord included. You can buy the cords from Ford.

look behind the bumper on the passengers side where the tow hook cut out is in the bumber....its there i bet. It will be zip tied to some other wires so you will have to cut it free.

when i got my truck it had a hitch installed on the front of the truck and my cord was pinched behind it (it took a while and many searches to find it) so i had to cut it off and get a new one i just cut the cord off an old apliance i think it was a tv and spliced it in and have not had a problem since.

the block heater itself came standard on every truck, but like mentioned before the cord was an option.

...I had a hard time finding mine one night, then found out it plugs in right above the oil filter. Just trace the cord from there, along the framerail, and you might find the end up under the bumper behind the DRIVERS foglight like I did on a 5*F night, a flashlight helps because most of the cord is covered in the same black plastic wrap that is on all the wires around there, hope that helps!
