i noticed on my 2006 LBZ Gmc DUramax last night a 3 prong plug just like a household plug for a vacume or powerstrip, microwave etc just your standard house hold pug coming out of a hole on the left side under the hood near the headlight ,i followed the wire and it goes into a bundle /wire harness

I have no idea what this plug is for , maybe I have the first ever diesel/electric Durmax Plug in ??HAHA jk but yea not sure what it is

Wow thats crazy never knew that exsisted , on my 2004 lb7 I never noticed it does lb7 have em?

yea it is pretty cold here right now about 39-49 degrees at night , which is really cold when surfing in that weather in 55 degree water , our over populated crowds kind of make me wish i lived elsewhere haha

THanks so much great info, so when the truck is off you actually plug that in?? crazy learn something new everyday on this forum CHEERS!!!

Every duramax has one. And a lot of guys won't bother with them till it gets down to below 15-20 degrees

If you plug it into your house and lay a brick on the throttle it will power your house for days... Duramax's are amazing engines.

You are the first person to find the block heater plug-- and was not even looking for it.

All the others look for it, and cannot find it-! :rolleyes:
