Hi. the vdc at the sensor seems to be fine. if the ground is sufficient, i would replace the gauge. its malfunctioning. Check for loose connection at gauge before replacing the gauge.

it's possible that the guage is broken... more likely is that the sensor has failed. Somewhere in the block is a temperature sending unit. It should have a single wire attatched to it. This is sometimes kind of hard to find and I'm not sure where it is on your engine. But this is what I would check for first.

Common problem on the 05 Mustang instrument clusters, it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and it can be repaired. Check out this page for more on how to get it fixed - 05 Mustang speedometer problems

It is possible that somehow your heater core is either blocked or airlocked. Best thing to do is to feel the two hoses that go to and from the heater core when the engine is up to normal operating temperature. If one hose is hot and the other is barely warm than you have a blocked up heater core. If you feel both hoses and they are barely warm than it is possible that you have an airlock in the system. The airlock is mostly likely to occur if you have recently had your heating system worked on such as a new radiator, thermastat, etc. If both hoses are hot then it could possibly be the heater blend doors inside the heater box could be stuck in the cold position. They are controlled from the switches on the dash. When you adjust the heat setting on the dial from hot to cold or cold to hot it moves the blend doors to either let more cold air in or more heat in. Hope this was helpful. Happy motoring.
