SOURCE: block heater

Naaaa.Old wives tales.I grew up in northern NY and back in the day,30 years ago,the climate was much more severe than today.I have seen -40 below up there.Block heaters back then were necessary for especially diesel trucks,as they do NOT like to start in those temps.Gasoline engines with today's fuel injection and computerized engine controls have no need for a block heater as they will fire at the hit of the switch immediately in those temps.Old carbureted cars from 30 years ago normally would NOT fire right up at -40 below WITHOUT a block heater.The only reason i can think to install a block heater is that you will have instant heat when you get in the car.If you are worried about accelerated engine wear because of extreme temps,then by all means install one,or just have a remote start installed,fire the car in the morning and let it warm up 10 minutes at idle before you drive it off.I have a certain relative in N.C. that does this in the summer time.Start the car out in the driveway from inside the house via the remote start,let it run for 10 minutes with the A/C on high to COOL it DOWN,lol.

SOURCE: Block heater for 98 dodge neon

Well the block heater itself is usually way under the engine where you can't see it, so I'm thinking you want the plug & cord that makes it work so you can plug it in. My 95 neon had it coiled up laying near the top of the fender under the hood on drivers side, if i remember correctly. It had a black cap over the plug which made it hard to find sometimes, even though I thought I knew where it was. Sometimes it would fall down behind or beside the engine controller.(gray looking computer box) I was always looking for a shiny plug-in type end but it was covered with a hard to see black little cap over it. I used a flashlight, and went along the top of the fenders until I spotted what looked similar to a black extension cord, then followed it to the end, and that's how I found it most times. Try going along drivers side top of fender first, then passenger fender, and then along the front, and maybe even attached in behind grille at front of car sometimes.

SOURCE: location of block heater cable on 05 F350 diesel

The block heater is already installed in your 6.0. The cord may not be there as it is an option in some states and standard equipment in others. The best way to see if your cord is there is to crawl under and look up by the # 4 cyl and you will either see 2 prongs sticking out for the cord or you will see the cord. The cord should end in the front bumper behind where the front tag would be. If you dont have the cord Id suggest getting it off ebay as it should be cheaper than the dealer. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: lost keys require new locks for BMW X3

replacing the complete lock set with the EWS control unit can be expensive as the control unit will also need to be programed and/or encoded, however if the lost keys cannot be found and you are sure they cannot be used to steel you car you can just order replacement keys from your local bmw dealer. hope this is of some help. You will also nead to disable the lost keys if you order replacements rather than a complete set.

Where is the fuse box in bmw x3 2013


According to http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=530507 kmarei says:
The X3 has (2) fuse blocks:

Fuse Block #1 is behind the glove box and is accessed through the removable panel at the far right at the back of the open glove box. The fuses are (5) or (6) inches behind the back of the glove box and will probably take someone with a very thin wrist or better yet, a surgical forceps or very long nose pliers to change. This fuse block houses fuses Nos. 1 through No. 67.

Fuse Block No. 2 is housed in the right rear fender. To access it you must remove the small right rear storage cover (pull firmly on the black hand hold). Then you must remove the plastic "push rivet" at the rear of the insulation cover. Pry the center pin out with a screwdriver or small knife, and then completely remove the plastic "rivet". Then simply roll the insulation cover forward and you will find the fuse block.
Fuse block No. 2 houses fuses Nos. 100 to No. 204.

The sheet listing the fuse locations for BOTH fuse blocks is folded and stored in a slot at the bottom of the fuse block (No. 2).

Where is the block heater and cord located on a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am?


Block heaters are not a factory options. They are installed as an aftermarket option after the vehicle is purchased. If you have not installed a block heater than there is likely not one in the vehicle. If one was installed it would be in one of the frost plugs in the side of the block. Since it is an aftermarket install the cord could be anywhere or missing. And experienced automotive professional would be able to find it if it was installed the next time you where in for service.

Where is my Block heater located on the block


Block heaters dont come as standard equipment. But if you have one look along the sides of the block under/behind the exhaust manifolds. If you have one it will be installed in what are known as the freeze plug holes. If you dont have heaters and need one you can pick one up at most autoparts stores. they come with installation instructions
