Hence, I thought that cable would go to the Ambient Temperature Sensor...
@jman1200 @waughoo thank you. I stand corrected.

Thanks so much! Slowly getting there!

Alright, so the part number for the ambient temperature sensor is GK3M61764A. Now, since I don't have the connector as it is ripped from that loose wire, can someone help me figure out what is the part number for the connector so I can attach it to the wires?

Thanks!

To the best of my knowledge it is part of the front wiring harness and ranges between $800-$1000 US


67-010A in the diagram below.



I think the only realistic bet you have is to visit a salvage yard and just clip one from a car there. You can grab the sensor at the same time and splice it in.

Slight correction... the lower right blue circle in @DrFeelGood 's photo near where the keys dangle is indeed the grill that leads to the cabin air temp sensor for the hvac. The one on the dash is connected to the hvac but doesn't read temp.
