Sadly, today's test was a flop. No benefit. I don't think the plug was properly plugged into the heater, because the engine cold light was still on for the start of my drive. I'm going to plug it in again Monday and check with my hand before I start up just in case, but I think the issue is the right angle plug. I'm going to have to pull it out and figure out if I can either hack it to turn 90 degrees either to the side or straight out. The coolant hose that's in my way is a hard line, so I can't do much about it.

Still, I will persevere. I think the cable is just a straight through 110 volt cable, so I may be able to rig something up myself that just clips onto the pins, and then just flood the area with silicone.
