Find the wire to the temp gauge sensor on the block of the engine. Unplug the wire and check your gauge. It should read max hot or cold. Ground the wire to the block and check your gauge. It should read the oppisite of the test before. If it does this then replace the temp sender. Otherwise head up the wiring to the gauge. Rare.

I have a 2008 Chevy Colorado and today my temp


when a temp gauge drops to cold ,it indicates a problem in the cooling system
temp gauge sender units need water to activate the resistance that makes the gauge read so a falling gauge indicates no water around the sender unit --- air lock in the system--faulty wire connection to the gauge sender unit
the ac unit is not connected to the temp gauge so there may be another separate problem there
the temp sensor is an entirely different unit to the temp gauge sender unit and the short term working would be from an altered coolant level from changing that sensor --air lock in system
the temp sensor connects to the ECM to activate the fans and monitor engine operating temp so as to keep the air/fuel mixture exact for the engine conditions
the temp sender unit just makes the temp gauge read
a faulty thermostat will either be stuck open and the engine temp will take a long time to rise or it will be stuck closed and that will cause an overheat very quickly

Temperature gauge not working


If you know that the radiator is full of coolant, and the temp gauge is not accurate, the sending unit for the gauge may be faulty.

Temp Gauge wire may be open circuit. Operation can be checked by Shorting connection to Temp Sender to engine. If the circuit is OK the Gauge should go up to Max.

there is one fuse for all the dash gauges, so chances are you have a wiring problem to the gauge sender on the engine or the gauge is defective, which is rare.
