OK, so I'm assuming it has fog lights and DRL lights. I'm taking a wild guess that that 6 pin connector is to go to the panel that contains the DRL, fog and temp sensor. Maybe if you trace back from that, you'll find the other half.

I traced that back and nothing, no other lose of rope. Connection that I can see, I’m taking it to the dealer on Friday. See what they say

I'm assuming @MileHighCruze13 is in Denver. If so which dealership did you take it to?

Just solved this issue in my Cruze that had front end damage...there's a small harness that branches off that six pin connector to a "t" two wires go to the sensor (blue and blue and black) and the other 3 go to DRL...on my 2016 Cruze limited Lt anyway.
I never had any luck finding out what the part number was for the smaller harness so I cut the 6pin connector off and hard wired the sensor. I purchased new sensor and the pigtail for it obviously. Let me know if you need any specific details if you go down the same route

Part number

Hi David, are you saying the sensor replacement doesnt need the harness? It's either sensor+pigtail or sensor+harness? What's the part number for the sensor and pigtail you used? I have a 2016 Cruze Limited L

Thanks to another member on here I believe this is the correct harness that goes from the 6pin connector...

Harness - GM (94780773) | TascaParts.com
Hey David, I literally gave up and left it alone.... dealership was no help at all. Would you mind posting a picture of your hard wire job after cutting off the 6 pin connector.... pretty please

!!!!!!!!!!!!!* Issue resolved took the “Black/Blue” wire and “Blue” wire. Soldered them together, heat shrinked then taped it all back. Took sensor off the new plug to verify temp no longer read on the heads up display, then plugged back in and Wa-La temp reads ambient. **!!!!!!!!!!!!
