Thats kinda wierd because you rav shoulda bin equiped with 1. The cord should be located in the lower portion of the bumper/grill on the drivers side. I had a bit of troulbes finding the cord too as from the factory it is coiled up and barried with in the bumber. You mite need a flashlight and a pair of plier to fish it out. Good luckMarcutio said:Its almost as if they built it for snow. I agree the winter is awesome but does anyone have a block heater in thier RAV? I don't and many mornings with -30 I wish I did. All my other cars came with them O.E. The RAV I don't think it was ever offered. I will have to buy an aftermarket Oil or block heater for this winter. Although I find that it warms up pretty quick, this will make it better for the engine at start-up.
