    boy, do I hate websites with this crap video autoplay

    not even a big deal, just don't use the engine block heater and get it fixed before next winter

    The most recent safety notification addresses potential damage to the engine block heater cable splice connectors. Such cables are used to keep trucks warmer in the winter to make ignition easier. The connector, Ford say, may have “inadvertently become damaged” during service.

    And that was a bigger headline than the near 3,000 owners of Explorers who are
    still complaining about headaches when they drive...on going issues with leaks?

    It is a Legitimate Recall and Concern, however.

    You are exactly correct. Now that Spring is here, just Don't Plug it in until repairs are made. Also, I understand the need for a 2 piece cord to aid in routing it to the outside of the vehicle. (the corrosion occurs at the junction) but the F Series already has the Block Heater routed to the Best Possible Exit Place. Why the need for the connection in the first place?

    Also, even in the Winter months, I never plugged either of my F150's in, even in the 2 weeks of -44F last winter. Mostly due to my Cord being a Block of Ice from Snow Plowing. They started every morning (manually I don't use the Remote @ that cold).
