Someone would need to test the sending unit on the engine.
Problem could be the sending unit, the gauge on the dash, or a problem with the wiring.
I assume the cooling system is full and the thermostat is working.

Temperature gauge not coming up ford Taurus even after driving 20 minutes


Have the temperature sending unit checked. Parts are usually under $20.00 and a pretty easy fix.

Need to know where the cylinder head temperature sensor is on a 2000 ford focus with a 2.0 zetec engine


It should be on the driver's side of the head in the heater hose or tube, there should be two of them, one for the computer and one for the temperature gauge. Good luck.

Why won't the oil and temperature gauge work on


you should switch the temperature sensor and oil pressure sensor you had on your first engine,because your new engine must come with the light indicator dashboard so the sensor of your new engine are not compatible with your gauges....lipak!...

Teampreature gauge not working


Sounds like you have installed a 'over-temperature switch' type sender unit- this type of sensor is only meant to control an over-temperature alarm indicator lamp that is either 'on' or 'off'.

The temperature gauge requires a 'variable resistance type' temperarure sensor to control the meter deflection.
When cold the temperature sensor is of high resistance, hence less meter deflection;
when hot temperature sensor is of low resistance, hence more meter deflection.

You need to procure a matching sensor to suit the type of gauge installed.

Is it possible you have connected to the temperature wrong temperature sensor? - most vehicles are fitted with both a gauge type (variable resistance) sensor to drive the temperature gauge, as well as a switch type (on or off) sensor to drive the overtemp indicator light.
