Your block heater may not be installed. It will be in a freeze plug location on the front of the motor. it will be a simple 3 wire plug that will fit an extension cord. The most likely place for it would be near a motor mount in the bottom of the block. If you cannot find a wire leaving the block area and heading to the fender well or radiator you may not have one installed and will need to install one.

Your best bet is have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's first before doing anything ! Sorry but you have no idea of the complexity of this vehicle .
Body Control System Circuit Description
The body control system consists of three modules, the Dash Integration Module (DIM), the Instrument Panel Integration Module (IPM), and the Rear Integration Module (RIM).
Dash Integration Module (DIM)
Battery Positive Voltage (B+) is provided from IGN SW fuse 20 in the Rear fuse Block on CKT 540 (ORN) to the DIM at connector C3 terminal G. The module ground is on connector C3 terminal E, which is wired to ground G201 by CKT 451 (BLK/WHT). Battery positive sense voltage is provided from DIM fuse 39 in the Rear fuse Block to the DIM at connector C3 terminal A12 on CKT 3340 (ORN). This battery input is referenced to the ground sense input at DIM connector C3 terminal B12, which is wired to the battery negative terminal and to ground G307 on CKT 50 (BLK). These sense inputs are physically connected to the battery positive and negative terminals for accurate battery voltage readings. The DIM is wired to the Class 2 serial data line CKT 1807 (PPL) at connector C2 terminals A11 and A12. The various DIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the DIM electrical schematics.
Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
Battery Positive Voltage (B+) is provided from I/P fuse 7 in the Underhood fuse Block on CKT 440 (ORN) to the IPM at connector C1 terminal C1. Ignition Positive Voltage (IGN3) is provided from the IGN3 RR fuse 6 in the Rear fuse Block to the IPM on CKT 41 (BRN) at connector C1 terminal C2. The voltage inputs are referenced to the module ground at connector C1 terminal D16 on CKT 451 (BLK/WHT). The IPM is wired to the Class 2 serial data line CKT 1807 (PPL) at connector C1 terminals C7 and C8. The various IPM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding areas as indicated on the IPM electrical schematics.
Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Battery Positive Voltage (B+) is provided from IGN SW fuse 20 in the Rear fuse Block on CKT 540 (ORN) to the RIM at connector C1 terminal A1. Ignition Positive Voltage (IGN1) is provided from IGN1 fuse 12 in the Rear fuse Block on CKT 1039 (PNK) at RIM connector C1 terminal A3. These voltage inputs are referenced to module ground at connector C1 terminals B7 and B8 on CKTs 1051 (BLK). The RIM is wired to the Class 2 serial data line CKT 1807 (PPL) at connector C2 terminals B3 and B4. The various RIM inputs and outputs are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.

Backup Lamp Circuit Description
Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied at all times to the REVERSE relay coil through the rear fuse block. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied at all times from the rear fuse block NSBU Fuse to the REVERSE relay switch. The powertrain control module (PCM) sends a class 2 message to the rear integration module (RIM) indicating that the gear selector lever is in the REVERSE position. The dash integration module (DIM) sends a class 2 message through power moding that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When these conditions occur, the RIM grounds the REVERSE relay coil. The coil is energized, closing the switch contacts. This supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are both permanently grounded, so both backup lamps have power and ground, and then light.

Do you know about class 2 serial data communications between control modules ? Do you know there is a fuse box under the rear seat ?

This is information taken from a Buick service repair manual !

Park Lamps
The dash integration module (DIM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the PRK LP relay coil. When the headlamps or park lamps need to be on or when the ignition switch is in the ON position. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied at all times to the PRK LP relay switch. When the park lamps are to be active, the DIM grounds the PRK LP relay coil. The coil is energized, closing the switch contacts. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the rear fuse block RH PARK LP Fuse, LH PARK LP Fuse, and DIMR Fuse. The LH PARK LP Fuse supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the LH park lamps. The LH PARK LP Fuse supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the LH park lamps. The LH and RH park lamps are permanently grounded, so all park lamps have power and ground, and then light. The DIMR Fuse supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the DIM park lamp input for interior lamps dimming, the license lamps, the underhood lamp, and the cornering lamps. The license lamps are permanently grounded, so both license lamps have power and ground, and then light.

The body control system consists of 3 modules:
• The dash integration module (DIM)
• The instrument panel module (IPM)
• The rear integration module (RIM)
Dash Integration Module (DIM)
Battery voltage is provided from the rear fuse block to the DIM. The module ground is wired to ground. Battery positive sense voltage is provided from the rear fuse block to the DIM. This battery input is referenced to the ground sense input at DIM which is wired to the battery negative terminal and to ground. These sense inputs are physically connected to the battery positive and negative terminals for accurate battery voltage readings. The DIM is wired to the class 2 serial data line. The various DIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the DIM electrical schematics.
Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
Battery voltage is provided from the underhood fuse block to the IPM. Ignition voltage is provided from the rear fuse block to the IPM. The voltage inputs are referenced to the module ground. The IPM is wired to the class 2 serial data line. The various IPM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the IPM electrical schematics.
Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Battery voltage is provided from the rear fuse block to the RIM. Ignition voltage is provided from the rear fuse block to the RIM. These voltage inputs are referenced to module ground. The RIM is wired to the class 2 serial data line. The various RIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.
Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The RIM functions include the following functions:
• Heated seat controls
• Rear defogger control
• Park relay controls
• Various controls for the interior lamps
• Reverse control for the backup lamps
• Rear compartment lid release controls
• Retained Accessory Power (RAP) control
• Ajar switch and tamper switch inputs from the rear compartment lid
• Vehicle leveling
Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop ! No offence but this is complex an a factory or professional grade scan tool is needed , could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .
Body Control System Description
The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The dash integration module (DIM), located behind the instrument panel, under the right dash sound insulator.
• The instrument panel module (IPM), located behind the instrument panel, under the left dash sound insulator.
• The rear integration module (RIM), located behind the rear seat back cushion (upper, left).

Where is the block heater cord located on my 2000 chevy blazer i can,t find it


Don't know if they all had one. Check side of the block below exhaust manifolds and if you find the heater in the block, trace back the cord to find the plug. The plug will likely be tied up in a bundle and tucked away very near the front of the truck, near the headlight.

Does a 1997 Geo Tracker have a block heater?


In most cases the block heater would have been a dealer installed item. If your car has one installed, you can find it by looking at the engine for the wiring or plug/ in cord. If one was installed and the cord is missing look at the engine block for a round connector mounted right into the block of the engine, look for the two connectors that the cord will plug into. they look like this --- mcneb_13.jpg

Heater fan is not working at all


Hi there,

There are a couple of things you need to check here. The way that the heater fan works is this: Input from the coolant temperature sensor sends input through a high speed and low speed fan relay in the Integrated Power Module (under hood fuse box.) This then triggers a relay mounted down low on the driver's side near the radiator which kicks the fan on or off.

The fan is set to work in a "stay alive" mode if the coolant temperature sensor input is invalid, or if it loses input from either of the two relays in the IPM. So it should run all the time if the coolant temp sensor is disconnected, or either of the relays are pulled from the IPM.

The relay on the frame is the most likely culprit here if it is not running at all. Do those tests, then take that relay off if you can't get it to run at all. It won't hurt it to remove it.

Hope this helps...

I am looking for the location of the block heater plug on a 1997 Golf diesel, thanks


There is no specific spot for a block heater. A block heater can be in any location the block currently has a freeze plug in. You'll need to look over the block carefully - you will see several round "ports" on the block and one of them will have a wire coming out of it. A freeze plug looks kind of like a small dish in the block, whereas a block heater will look more like a flat plug with a wire. It could be on the side or back of your motor - rarely is there room for a block heater on the front of a motor. Look in the front grill or in the general area of the radiator and you should see one end of a male electric cord( like the end of a lamp cord you stick in the wall ) . Follow this wire to the engine and it will lead you to the location of the block heater. You will probably need an inspection mirror and a flashlight to find the other end ( in the block).
Hope this helps!

Where do you plug in a2003 chevy 2500 diesel when it is going to be cold


If you have a block heater, there will be an extension cord type plug somewhere near or under the front grille (sometimes you need to find the heater and follow the wire to find wherever it got tucked in) That gets plugged into an extension cord from the house power.
