I would bet on it being the sensor.The sensor sends the signal to the computer and from there to the gauge and light.

1998 BMW 528 recently replaced radiator, water pump & pulley temp gauge sat middle all good THEN 2 months after all this temp gauge goes past middle then dropped back to middle . Next day temp gauge...


It could be the thermostat but you need to check the fluid level and for any leaks (these could even be pin hole) first. If you have one of those infra-red temperature gauges you can check the temperature of the cooling system in the engine bay to double check. Generally the engine temperature should not go much about 90 deg C - this is when the electric cooling fans kick in - are these turning on?

My temp gauge is going to the red , I turn my heater on and it does go down somewhat . Motor doesn't really seam that hot but might be . Thanks


It sounds like the cooling fan is not working, with the motor off look in front of the motor and there is a fan or 2, check the wiring and plugs, some times they corrode and can be cleaned with alloy wheel cleaner then water then spray oil in them otherwise the fuses and the thermo switch need checking.
