first and foremost check the fuse box. there is a fuse for guages. The temp sensor is somewhere on the manifold and it will have a hard wire with probably a spring around it for protections that runs from the engine to the instrument cluster. You can remove the temp sensor and use a heat gun or propain heat and see if you get any kind of response. I suspect if all your other gauges are working the fuse is good. Most temp sensors do not use power only for lighting of the gauge, It just sends a resistance change to the water temp bulb and it moves the gauge. Is it a seperate gauge or in your insturment cluster? could be simple as a crushed line or the sensor went bad. It is normally self contained. I suspect it is a gauge and not a dummy light? if you can not get the one working in the instrument cluster I suggest going to and autoparts store and replace it which is very easy to do. You can remove the old sensor from the block and reinstall the new on in its place and run the cable back through where the first one was and mount the gauge in another area, It is very important to know the water temp since most computers use this info for setting the correct fuel to air mixture in a closed loop system. That is a diffrent sensor but you need to know the temp yourself to keep from blowing a head gasket or worse which can cause you lots of money to repair, I prefer to mount my own gauge seperate from the cluster, best of luck

no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.

A battery drain will not be caused by a bad fuse, its called by something draining power that you can not see. We call this a parasitic dran because just like a parasite drains your energy so does this. Its easy to test for if you have a test light. Loosen the negative battery cable and attach the aligator clip to the clamp next hold the post of the test light to the post of the battery and remove the battery cable being careful not to let it touch the test light. If you have any light thats your drain. On some fords you need to give the computers 30 minutes to power down after shutting the car off. if you want to isolate the system thats causing the drain pull and replace fuses one by one, when the light goes out you have your suspect.
