Location of block heater cord on 2010

Hey i tried searching but didn't see anything. Can anyone tell me where the cord is for the block heater? If you have a picture that'd be awesome!

And is it okay if I plug it in from about 6pm to 5am every night? Does it regulate how long it's on for?

All Duramax engines come with a block heater-- and it is difficult to find----- even if you know where to look.

Under the passender side battery, it is taped to the wire harness. Some have had to remove the inner panel to see well enough to remove the tape and get the cord out!

I have a timer that works nice. It comes on at 5:00am and stays on for an hour or so till I am ready to leave. They are fairly inexpensive and it saves some on electricity. Also, turn your heater on defrost before you shut the truck off, and it helps keep your window from frosting/icing over.

You can plug it in all night long it wont hurt ,but 1 or 2 hours before start up saves electricity and extra wear on the heater element.Its there dont stop looking till you find it..

To tag along on this, do any of you in the colder regions use the battery blankets? I plan on going to WY and want to make sure I dont have any starting issues with mine.

they also make timers that you can plug your truck into that wont turn on the block heater untill the time you set it for.
