Hello b raine11-- This is the second question I've had this week asking me about a block heater. What, you from the North Pole or something? The block heater was installed after market (probably not at the factory.) Look for the plug hanging out near the exhaust manifold or up near the grill. Next time you unplug it, try to remember where you last saw it. Maybe you could tape an old bandana around it. Make it easy on yourself. Good luck from tropical Boston and Bovan.

Hey b_raine11. I'm not sure there's a specific storage space for the cord but I believe the plug will be on the front of the engine compartment near the front license plate holder tucked inside the airdam. I did find one reference on the '96 model year where there was a box for the cord in the right front of the engine compartment, so you might want to check there. If that fails give your local Ford dealer a call and he'll be able to home you in on it. Good luck!
