good chance you t-stat is stuck open that will cause the temp gauge to not get all the way to normal operating temp. also e.c.t can cause this problem. good luck hope that helps. to bridge your connector it will not really tell you to much if you take a multi meter and check the green wire and put the other wire to ground you can see the signal voltage less then 6v

SOURCE: I have a Golf 1
This problem is due to a bad coolant temp sensor, the sensor controls the fans and the gauge, if the sensor is not telling the computer the correct temp then the fans will not be turned on when they are needed, i would start with the temp sensor first and then go from there if theres still a problem.

first thing to check is your coolant level. a lot of fluctuation will occur if the coolant level is low. if it is, be sure to find the leak to avoid engine damage. other causes can be plugged radiator, faulty thermostat, etc. but start with the coolant level.

Check the brake switch, it may need adjustment or the rubber on the switch might be loose and on the pedal there is a pin and some sort of circlip. Check that also
