I found a cord hanging below my engine

Asked by Jun 09, 2015 at 04:25 PM about the 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe SE AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an orange three prong female connector cord hanging below my vehicle.  It looks
like it has been there for a little while as there is some wear from rubbing.  I have had no
check engine indications or vehicle performance issues. I also have no idea where the
cord plugs into. Can anyone tell me what this cord is from and where it belongs?  It would
be greatly appreciated.

Does the A/C and all accessories function properly. I suppose it could be a block heater cord, but it should have a 3 prong plug like that plugs into a wall outlet in your home. Maybe part of it is missing.

I found it....That is a block heater connector, but it is the end that connects to the block heater itself. There should be a 3 prong 110v plug on the other end of that wire. Do a Google for Santa Fe block heaters and look at the pictures that come up.
