Question about Cars & Trucks
The easiest way to start diagnosing is disconnect temp. sensor connector and connect it to the good known sensor. If gage stays where it was, then this is not the sensor. Next step is to have electrical diagram of this model and see how exactly your gage is connected. It can be reading from ECM signal, or directly from that sensor. If it is direct reading, than it can be faulty gage or dashboard controller. In case it connected to ECM it can be incorrect ECM output (which very unusual).

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens. One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side, fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight. Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.

Could be thermostat this regulates the water flow around the engine to keep it cool sounds like it is sticking open when water gets hot!!

Here's the thing. The ECU will shut down AC if the engine temperature is too hot. If the coolant temperature sensor is malfunctioning (lying to the ECU) telling it that the temperature is hotter than it actually is, the computer will turn the AC OFF.
