Hey steve. Your block heater cord should be in the very front, somewhere in the area behind your bumper/grille area. Also check under the hood on both sides, it will be the only 3 wire grounded cord in there. It may be coiled up also, so look for a coiled up unpluged cord too.
Good luck

Some of my older campers had a separate 110 light available.

I have a 2000 f-350 power stroke that i can't start for nothing? i has new glow plugs, new relay for glow plus,new starter and new fuses also. if someone has any idea's please let me know. thanks, steve

The powerstroke engine has an oil pressure/fuel shutoff switch that sometimes fails. The engine can't get any fuel if the pressure switch isn't made. This can be intermittent or it can just quit all at once. You can look at and search the forums to see if anyone there knows any more specifics about location or how to test/change it.

X5 abs trac controle and stabilety controle

Hello Steve

The problem is in the fuse box. The ABS Fuse needs replacing and while you are doing this make sure you check other fuses too, as the ABS fuse normally takes out other fuses but not always.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.
