Wiring the block heater up..

Hey guys i was wondering if anyone had a thread or pics of installing or wiring up a block heater on an 05 6.0? And a block heater comes factory on all trucks right? Thanks for any help. My email is matthewcox32@aol.com if you need it to send any pics.

You should be able to buy a factory cord from Ford and plug it directly into the block heater. The heater is on the passenger side of the block. Sorry, don't have a pic.

You can get the cord for $20 shipped on eBay and works great. I bought one and have had no problems. And like DHanna said it's on the passenger side by the frame. Not too hard to see. It is about the size of a quarter and has 2 terminals sticking out.

Don't go to Ford. They wanted $100 just for the cord. I bought it on ebay for $22 shipped. I did have Ford put it on because I'm not mechanically intelligent at all. Seems like they charged me $50 or $60 bucks after being told on the phone it would be $100. I waited until I had it in there for an oil change and asked them to do it while it was already there. You'd think a truck with a $52,000 MSRP would have a $20 cord especially with the block heater already there.

Current one - 2006 F250 Crew Cab 4x4 King Ranch FX4
1st one - 2002 F250 Crew Cab 4x4 Lariat - SOLD
2nd one - 2005 F250 Crew Cab 4x4 King Ranch - SOLD
3rd one - 2001 F-350 Crew Cab 4x4 XLT - SOLD

I wanna come work for you. Lefty loosey, Righty Tighty!!! Thats all you needed to know to put that part and. It takes about a minute and a half. You should have asked how and somebody on here could have told you how to do it easily. Would've saved you some $$$$
