I believe you have a block heater. You need to buy the cord and plug it in. Do a thread search for this because there is already a thread that details this with pics showing the location on the block that you plug the cord into.
I pick up my Overland HA diesel tomorrow after 11 weeks waiting from order date.
It would have been another 2 weeks but the dealer phoned and asked me for authorization for them to get the vehicle from the staging yard in Calgary and drive it here, about 100 km’s.

My JT will be delivered to the dealer tomorrow so I don‘t know the specific rating on the Overland high altitude diesel. I know it...
Yes I can do that. However just sitting around online in the evening and knowing there is a great knowledge base here I thought I would ask the question and tap into that. I’ll start with the chalk test though.

Quite a bit of my driving (60-70%) is with the vehicle unloaded and just me driving.
The tire pressure decal on the door frame lists max tire pressure fully loaded.
So, for example, the max pressure is 44 psi...
I have had TPM errors but only when changing from winter to summer tires and vv. Of course they are not really errors,the system is doing what it is supposed to - provide a notification that some tracked component is not reading correctly. No issue with my tires however, it just takes an hour or...
