I just bought a 3.0 1500 CrewCab Laramie. Great truck!!! After reading through the manual, I am confused about whether this diesel has a block heater. Nothing in the Window Sticker mentions it.

Anyone know where to check in the engine bay for plug attachment point?:confused:

Good question. Have you checked the owners manual, if anything it should mention in their where you can find the heater.

Did not order the heater. Manual mentions it having one, but when I see it as an option for order, I question it. Mine was the first off of the Dealer's Lot. Their staff has no clue about it.

I assumed that if RAM is selling a diesel in Colorado, they would have known that below zero temps are a likely occurance for 3-4 mos of the year.

I will dig around the passenger side compartment and see what i can find.

Per other thread, I looked under the truck, behind the passenger tire at the base of the engine. There is a brass fixture with an orange plug cover as described. Now just need to acquire the correct cord.

While at Service Dept I asked Parts person about purchase of the cord and was quoted $135.00. Good news is it is in stock! Gee, I wonder why??
