There are only a couple things you can check. First, I would make sure the gauge is reading properly by checking the fluid temperature manually. Newer model cars have temperature sensors that can malfunction but they will usually set your check engine light off it that is the case. Check your radiator fluid. While the engine is cold!! See if it looks dirty. Rub it between your fingers and see how viscous it feels. Make sure the radiator is full. You may just need to get your radiator flushed. A lack of flow will cause an overheating condition. When your back in motion the engine has more pressure to circulate the fluid. When the car is moving there is airflow that also aids in the cooling process as well. Other than that you have a thermostat which could be sticking and causing it to overheat. Or the water pump is bad. A flush and fill and replacing the thermostat are fairly cheap and usually a lot easier to do than replacing the water pump. Especially on a Honda. Usually you will hear a squealing noise if your water pump is going out and there is, I think it is called a weep hole on the pump itself that will start to leak when the pump is going bad.

sounds like your low on coolant or you have air in the cooling system
water is needed for the sensor to show a true value and if your low or have air you sensor will at times because of the thermostat opening

SOURCE: Honda Accord 20012.0L auto, Radiator fans is not working.

check the thermostat, the thermostat regulates water flow through your engine to cool it down sometimes they get stuck open or closed, remove it and put it through a simple test
grab a cup of cold water and a glass of hot water drop it in one then the other, you should be able to see if it opens and closes

My temperature gauge doesn't work on my 1990 Honda accord


Using an ohms tester, remove your temperature sensor and apply hot and cold water to it. If you find a difference in resistance, then refit it and replace your instrument temperature gauge

check the temperature sensor behind the cylinder head if is working. remove the connector and earth it and see if the gauge is moving. If so then the fault is the temperature sensor.

Do you I need to replace the thermostat on my 1999 Honda Accord as a preventative measure only?


No only if you have noticed a change in engine running temperature on gauge, colder or hotter than normal.
