Hiya
The factory install block heater wire harness around the air filter unit area (IF it's equipped with this block heater feature)
IF it's the wire you're searching for to plug it into the electric outlet, here's how to...
Pop open the hood as you stand in front to raise the hood, look for the black square-shaped air filter unit at the left-front side just behind the passenger side headlight area.
There's a black plastic clamp that holds the block heater wire harness onto the air filter's bolt bracket by the front strut tower area (bolt is north of the air filter unit)
That's the route for this block heater wire harness to go around the left side of the air filter unit.
In case you do locate the block heater wire harness there, follow the wire harness route until you find the plug socket.
Perhaps it's underneath the air filter unit or tucked somewhere behind the headlight frame area.

Where is the location of the oil pressure sender on a 2014 awd Chevy Equinox?


The AWD Equinox has two model selections (LS & LT) and two 2.4L engine options (K2.4L FI DOHC & the K2.4L Flex Fuel DOHC.)

Information on the Equinox engines oil pressure senders location is difficult to find on line so all I can offer in the way of help is to say that It will be on the engine block connected to the ECM (engine Control Module) with a single TN/BK (Tan/Black) wire lead.

The Oil Pressure Sender is a distinct looking unit that is sold by Autozone and they provide pictures of the various makes which should help you identify the units location on your engine block.

Where is plug in cord located?


I suspect your referring to the block heater?

A block heater for your Equinox may be a cold climate option so your vehicle may not be equipped with one.

The A/C connection plug is usually located under the hood close to the front of the vehicle.

The block heater cord to 2004 jetta came unplugged from the car and I'm not sure where to look to plug it back in Can someone give me a general idea where it might go?


Block heaters are installed on the engine block in one of the "freeze plug" openings. The freeze plug is punched out and the block heater is installed in its place. The freeze plugs, about 3 on each side of the engine, are midway up the block- a round, slightly recessed metal plug about 2 inches in diameter that is driven into these holes made during the engine casting process. The freeze plugs will be found below where the exhaust manifold attaches-so if you are looking on the side of the engine with the exhaust manifold-look behind and just below the exhaust manifold. The other side of engine will have the same number of freeze plugs at the same level on the engine block.
Your block heater is probably on the front facing side of the engine (towards the radiator). It is probably shinier than tom the he regular freeze plugs, will have a small screw in the center for tightening when installed, and will have 2 or 3 metal prongs that your heater cord attaches to. Simply plug it back into the heater. Just remember: about halfway up on the engine block, from the oil pan rail at bottom to the top of block where the cylinder head mates.

Cant find the block heater cord


need more info, what year, make, model, engineering. just because the owners manual says.there is a block heater, that doesn't mean you have one look around, try to find a short power cord that you would plug into a extension cord, also look at the engine block, look.at all your freeze plugs, this is where most block heaters go, if you do not see anything in.any of the freeze plugs, then.you do not have one the other kind of engine heater, would be in the top or bottom radiator hoses, or even.heat core hoses, again.there would be.a.cord.to.plug into. most of the time, they would pull the cord up to the front, by the grill, so you can plug it in

Where do I find the block heater on my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The location of your block heater depends on which motor you have. If you have a 4.7L motor it is on the rear frost plug location on the right side of the engine (passenger side).


raineman_15_16.gif If you are installing a new one notice the direction the block heater points when it goes into the block (upwards).

If you have a 3.7L engine it looks like it is on the same side of the engine except that is is in the first frost plug location. Here is a picture of it.

Now if I understood your question wrong and you are just looking for the block hearts cord, open the hood and check inside the engine compartment or look agound your grill and front bumper area.

Good Luck

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!

I can't locate my plug in for the block heater in my 2005 Ford Taurus...any hints as to where it might and/or how to locate?


Get down on your knees and look down near the front end of the car in between the grates/grill, from the outside. It should be more so on the driver side. You should see a small black square thing with a cord coming out of the back of it, that's the cap for the block heater plug. Reach in and you will be able to pull the cap to the side, and you'll see the plug facing you.
