Chevrolet Spark Owners Manual: Engine Heater

  1. Open the hood and unwrap the electrical cord. The cord is located in the passenger side of the engine compartment, near the engine coolant container.

    It is shipped from the factory with a tie holding it in place. Use care in removing the tie so that the cord is not damaged.

    Check the heater cord for damage. If it is damaged, do not use it. See your dealer for a replacement. Inspect the cord for damage yearly.

  2. Plug it into a normal, grounded 110-volt AC outlet.

Warning

Improper use of the heater cord or an extension cord can damage the cord and may result in overheating and fire.

  1. Before starting the engine, be sure to unplug and store the cord as it was before to keep it away from moving engine parts.

    If you do not it could be damaged.
