There is a lead from the gauge that attaches to the engine and it sounds like it has become disconnected. I have had it happen to me a couple of times on different vehicles. Simply plug it back on/in and your temp gauge should start working. If for some reason that does not solve the issue, then you may have a bad temp gauge, but that is super rare and most likely not the issue. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.
The heater may not work because of a bad thermostat, low coolant, or a bad sensor at the engine. It can also be a bad resistor valve under the dash. The resistor valve is connected to a wire plug on the blower motor under the dashboard. It needs to be replaced. Th AC may need to be refilled with refrigerant or the compressor may be bad.
take a small stiff wire (paperclips sometimes work) and make a slight hook in one end....you may be able to work it past the broken piece in the cylinder and hook it and pull it out...it may take awhile, but it ususally works
