This is my first winter with my 2000 Outback and I'm wondering if the car would have been built with a block heater as all North American cars sold in Canada are.If so where would I look for the cord.BTW I haven't looked for it at all yet as my wife has it most of the time.

It would be by the front bumper, in betwwen the fog lights prolly on the right side, a plug is what you are looking for. I just got to use mine last night/ this morning. Its awesome, barely even noticed the cold morning tick, and the heat was warm within the first minute of driving!!!!

I recently installed Block Heater on my 2004 Outback 4Cly. Subaru has an $89.99 fall special. I put a timer on it, and its working great. I reside in Richmond Hill, ON. So it gets realy cold out here.

good day,

Could someone who has an Ohm meter and knows how to use it, measure the resistanc of the block heater (one that works, obviously) at the AC plug.
NOT while it is plugged in the wall socket; have to say that for the lawyers out there. I know what the value should be using Ohm's Law, but want an actual measured value.
THANKS
