Temperature Gauge in 2000 Honda Civic LX

I watched my temperature gauge in my 2000 Honda Civic LX go from the normal temperature reading to hot instantly. I checked the coolant levels the next day to see if I was running low on coolant and everything was normal. The vehicle was not overheating at the time or running any warmer than normal as far as I could tell. There are no leaks. I am confused on what might be the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The temperature gauge in my ford festiva 1995 does not work. Is it relatively easy to replace the sensor and if so where is it located in this car? Thanks


Ground the temperature gauge wire to the engine using a jumper wire, then watch the temperature gauge needle. If the gauge now reads Hot, replace the temperature sending unit. Check the fuse for the temperature gauge circuit. If the fuse is good, check for voltage at the ignition terminal on the gauge with turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using a voltmeter. If there is no voltage, there is a problem in the circuit between the ignition key and the gauge or the fuse panel and the gauge temperature. Fix the problem and test again. If there is voltage, replace the gauge.

Engine coolant Temperature gauge fluctuates


Watch the temp gauge when the electric radiator fans come on. The temp sensor that controls when the fan comes on may be faulty.
