Where is my block heater cord?

I have a 2006 Liberty Limited and I can't seem to locate my block heater cord under the hood. Does anyone know where it usually is?

Thanks

On my '06 CRD it was tie corded to the engine oil dip stick shaft. I had to remove the plastic engine cover to find it. I am assuming you have the CRD. I am not familiar with location if it is on a 3.7.

Nope, it wasn't near the oil dip stick either.

Do you know for sure if you even have a block heater? The heater itself lives on the passenger side of the engine if it is a 3.7L So the cord will be by the airbox somewhere.

When you pop the hood, look around the left side of the engine. It should be all tied up nice and neat. You'll have to snip the plastic ties carefully to uncoil it. I used more plastic clips to wind it through the engine and down the front so I can plug it in through the front bumber where the tow hook installs. Keep it away from moving parts and hot things. I think it also has its' own cover to keep moisture out.

Good luck!

Standard on the diesels but optional on the gas models. In most climates it's a rare option.

I found it this morning. It was to the left of the engine just behind the oil dip stick. I couldn't spot it at first because it is quite low down within the engine bay. Luckily I know where it is now for those brutally cold days soon to come.
