There is a connector/sensor with green or red ring in the heater pipe on the back.

Assuming all your other instruments are functioning ok, disconnect the sender wire and ground it against the cylinder head, (ignition on). If the gauge needle then moves, you should replace the sender unit.

How many teperature sensor does geo tracker have

normally one
it is near the thermostat housing and has up to 4 wires attach to the plug
it is used to repot engine coolant temperature to the ECM so that air/fuel mixture can be adjusted and the fans switched on through a relay
don;t confuse it with a coolant temperature sender which has 1 wire and works the temp gauge

My au Falcon teperature light comes on about a minute after the engine is started, the temperature gauge shows low temperature, the radiator is not boiling, I have taken the temperature sender unit out of...

The low water level sensor is in the overflow bottle, not the overtemp sensor.

The overtemp sensor will be on the motor somewhere.

To check you have the right sensor- short the sensor to ground and observe the overtemp light operation.

You likely have a faulty over temperature switch sensor.
