Please help me find my "engine block heater" cord.

I looked under the hood near the passenger's side firewall. For the life of me, I can't find the cord used to plug the engine block heater into a standard 120VAC electrical outlet.

Is the cord hidden somewhere? Can someone please narrow it down for me where this cord is?

...Or, maybe mine doesn't have this little gizmo. I dunno know.

Thank you.

On my 07 it was tied up inside of the passenger side battery. It was kind of hidden, but look around the battery.

Thanks guys, I found it. It was actually forward of the passenger side battery by about 16 inches. Then down from the top of the battery by about 18 inches. It was coiled up along the length of some other cable and wrapped up with electrical tape and a black rubber zip tie type thingy.

Then.... it was BEHIND the wiring harness. Really camofluged up! Thanks for the pics. They helped out!
