Ambient Air Temperature Sensor

15231 13
I'm currently working on a 2017 Cruze that was wrecked. I had found 2 severed wires and discovered that's what it was for....... the plug and sensor were both missing and after much research I cannot find any parts diagrams for the wiring. I have ordered a new sensor but have not received it yet but I cannot find out a pigtail part number. Does anyone know how to reference the sensor to a pigtail or does anyone just happen to know it? Also I discovered that first generation Cruzes used the same part numbered sensor 13583411

I suspect the pigtail you are looking for is part of the underhood harness and not serviced as a separate part.

Trip to a wrecking yard may be in order since gen1 and 2 likely use the same connector as well.

If I remember to look it up, I can find the numbers for the connect - now, getting it is going to be another story. If you find a way, I want to know how. I've got some projects in mind and I'd rather use connectors to add the wiring than hack up harness.

It is possible to purchase a pigtail splice connection to repair the wiring. For the Pigtail it was $30 something from the GM Dealer. I may be able to get it for less at another dealer who cut me a good deal on my original 29 parts for the rebuild but its kinda outta the way....... plan to call them Monday to place an order for it unless I find for sure what PT# it is and cheaper on Ebay.

Quick question. I know you say it's located on the lower grill, but which side, etc? I cannot locate it on my 2017 LT w/ RS....
Driver side, goes in a small little hole located in the grill section.

That's absolutely the hole. The sensor is relatively cheap. My friend's '16 literally lost that sensor just driving down the road so it's fairly possible it was either lost/not secured well.
