Block Heater

Did all the diesel vans come with a block heater? I read in the owners manual and looked where it instructed. I cannot find a cord or heater on the passenger side anywhere, I have looked all over the engine compartment and can not find it.

Thanks

Does the cord just plug into the heater? Does it have to be a specific cord from the dealer?

Yes the cord just plugs into the heater. Buy from the dealer then you know you will get the correct cord and have no worries.
