Q: Need help with block heater cord on my van

asked by on

Where can I run out the block heater cord on my van?

Hello. From the factory, the block heater comes out of the front of the vehicle. Depending on if you are using the factory system or if you are using an aftermarket unit you may need to mount it someplace else depending on where it attaches to the engine.
