ENGINE BLOCK HEATER — IF EQUIPPED
The engine block heater warms the engine, and permits quicker starts in cold weather. Connect the cord to a standard 110-115 Volt AC electrical outlet with a grounded, three-wire extension cord.
For ambient temperatures below 0°F (-18°C), engine block heater usage is recommended.
For ambient temperatures below –20°F
(-29°C), engine block heater usage is required.
The engine block heater cord is routed through the grille by the right front tow hook.
It includes a removable cap that is secured by a tethered strap. It also has a c-clip that is used for storage when not in use for the Winter months. During Winter months, remove the heater cord wiring assembly from itself on the c-clip.
The engine block heater must be plugged in at least one hour to have an adequate warming effect on the engine.
