    This may or may not be right for the Cruze but there was a recall for thermostats awhile back

    He probably found Technical Service Bulletin PI0375 which addresses multiple DTC codes regarding the thermostat heater and related wiring. They will have to check several things to correct the error and that is why you need to bring it in.

    I went out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

    It's correct P0 codes are generic codes across the OBDII platform. P1 codes are manufacturer specific

    My 2012 Cruze just threw this code at 37,600 miles- and it was indeed a defective thermostat- covered under warranty! *whew*

    Dealer took care of it in just a couple of hours -
