The electrical plug goes to a block heater. They are usually installed in a freeze plug hole in the engine block.

Block heaters are installed in place of one of the frost plugs, normally on the passenger side of the engine. If you have a factory one installed, the cord is normally found coiled up just behind the passenger side headlamp. There is a flat plug in the line so you can feed the wire through the grill, to expose it for winter in a way that won't damage the paint of the vehicle. If you don't have one the Ford original part is somewhere around $35. Install is about $150-200.

My plug in on my 02 explorer is mounted just below the grill more towards the passenger side and it has a spring loaded plastic cover that flips up so you can plug in a female end of an extension cord.this truck I noticed originated in Canada so it prob needed block heater
