Cold Weather Plug in Location???

Hello,

I have an 04 2500 Dodge Cummins, it's been pretty cold here lately and is a little rough to start in the morning. I can't for the life of me find the plug to plug it in. Is this something that I need to have intalled or am I just blind?

if you do have it ... it should be on the passenger side .
depending on where you live it may not have came on the truck . just go to the dealer they could tell you.

or just get a cord i think they are 10 bucks.

Some did not come with the cord. If you have it they are normally located near the front right (passenger side) near the headlight. If you don't have it the engine has the block heater and you just need the cord. Usually a little more than $10. You can get it from Geno's as well as other places.

If you cannot locate the cord here is where the block heater is located.
Just to the rear of the Oil Filter.

Okay so I looked and there looks like there is just a plug in that spot. So do I need the block heater and the cord?

The Cover Comes Off The Heating Element And The Cord Screws On, Use A Little Antisieze With It.
Best Price Will Probably Be From Genos Garage. Dealers And Cummins Are Around The $30 Range And I Think Genos Is $14.

Block heater cord

When get the cord it should take you 5-10 min to install. I got my last week, I live in South Mississippi and Dodge didn't think I needed a cord.

He said he has a 2004, that means a 5.9

Are they the same as the 6.7?

I rolled under a 6.7 inside the dealership and had to use a flashlight to follow where the cord goes.

I think the 6.7's might be more of a Pain then the 5.9.

They are in the same place on the 6.7 also and no more trouble to install than the 5.9.

Isn't insane the few dollars they try to save in these trucks because they think they know what is best for you?!?!
