I don't think there is a fuse. My temperature gage did not work so I bought a new temperature sending unit and replaced the old one on my four cylinder ztec engine. I think it was located on the front of the engine drivers side. Very simple job. The first time though I was given the wrong part as there are two separate sensors in this car, one of which takes care of the temperature sending information to the computer to tell the injectors how warm the engine is. Change both if you have the money...it can't hurt. Check the wiring going to these units also, Contours were notorious for wiring issues.

Check coolant temperature with a thermometer- could be a bad gauge reading or a defective fan sensor
