you have one of two problems. either you have a bad gauge or a bad sensor. I would go to a pick and pull junkyard and get a new sender off of a car at the junkyard, if that does not help, I would go back to the junkyard and get the gauge of another car and replace it. This will solve your problem Dodge Spirit and Plymouth Acclaims have issues with the temp sensor. Also, you could have a leaking head gasket which is my current problem on my 94 Spirit.

The 1998 Lincoln Continental has a thermostat which measures the internal temperature of the engine. This is displayed on the dashboard.
If it comes on it means the temperature of your engine is too hot. Your engine is overheating.
The gauge reading has nothing to do with the overheating problem. Misleading and irritating yes, but not involved in causing it.See "Related Questions" below for discussion on replacing the temperature sending unit, and also a comprehensive diagnostic guide for overheating problems.
If the car is running OK, not overheating or anything like that, I'd say that either you have a faulty heat control, or you need a new thermostat.Checking the control will mean digging into the dashboard to see what has failed.Changing the thermostat isn't a terrible job. You might, however, pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car at your local big box parts store. They are remarkably helpful!
The warning lights on the dashboard of a Honda can mean different things including low oil pressure and overheating. There are Honda City dealers across the country that can use diagnostic tools to determine the cause.

To give some additional information, it is a 2000 Hyundai Elantra and this morning after warming up for 20 minutes the belts still squealed the entire drive to work (about a half hour). I thought I smelled burning rubber at one point. The heat went out and only resumed if I stopped it and started it again a few minutes later. The power windows go up and down but really slowly. The lights on the dashboard were very dim. Then right before I got to work I saw that my engine was overheating. Thermostat replaced in June. Could it be one of the belts needs replaced?
The dash or the dashboard.
