Hello all. I just bought a new to me diesel and I just saw the cord in the attached picture. Anyone help me out and tell me what it is? Comes out of the console.

Was the truck used?

A tuner maybe? Pretty common in a Diesel. Did the seller mention if it was tuned?

Looks like an ODB (on board diagnostic) plug. What year and model?

Could be a plow, but not a Boss.
Based on the position, that'd be my bet.
It is NOT AT ALL an OBD port.

Truck in profile isnít correct. New truck is 2015 3500 DRW High Country. Didnít think of snow plow, Iíd imagine thatís what it was.

Crawl under the front, where it was attached should be obvious.
I'd have the trans serviced on your truck, plow work is hard on transmissions.

So we're chipping away looking for information. High Country means it's a Chevrolet, right?

Also check your frame for weld cracking or parent metal cracking around the snow plow frame connections.

When I use to own Jeeps every year in the spring all of the pick-up trucks in the area that did snow plowing. Would be in this certain Jeep Dealer in IL getting the truck's frames repaired. This included Ford's, Chevy's, GMC, Jeeps and Dodge's. The dealer ran a certified weld repair shop for a side business.
