try replacing the thermostat
Try replacing temperature sensor
They are usually located in the spare whell bracket
Its the same as most cars.. Just under half way on the gauge.
Because the motor is running to hot try flushing your radiator and putting new coolant in.
It seems that your thermostat is not opening.
My Altima had that problem and it was the water pump going out. It started with temperature gauge was moving, but then it started leaking and finally the heater stopped being warm at idle.
Potenially a bad temperature sensor or bad contact on the wire connector. Test for set voltage resistance according to temperature.
If it reads hot after the vehicle has been standing overnight, it is dead and needs replacing.
replace temperature gauge
If the car is overheating or if the temperature gauge is not coming up to normal operating temperature which is normally half way up the gauge then the thermostat needs replacing. As the water pump should be replaced at the same time as the cam belt every 90,000 miles, you should also replace the thermostat and coolant.If the car is overheating or if the temperature gauge is not coming up to normal operating temperature which is normally half way up the gauge then the thermostat needs replacing.

Try checking Fuse #7 10amp under the dash. This is for a 1997 model.
Where is the coolant temperature sensor located on a 2002 Nissan Sentra? my car s dashboard gauge shows my car is running hot the drops back down to normal any idea?[Improve]
either your gauge/sensor or your thermostat or both need replacing. Internal combustion engines do not run cool
1998 Nissan Pathfinder the speedometer and heat gauge quit workin?
The engine coolant temperature sensor and coolant temperature gauge sender are located on the passenger's side of the engine, under the intake manifold.
Fuse location for temperature gauge for a Malibu
It is on the passenger side of the block, below the exhaust manifold and next to the oil filter. It is a covered by a bell shaped rubber boot with wires coming out of it. Steve There may also be a oil temperature sensor if you have a turbo model , It is on the oil pan....
Defective temperature gauge or defective temperature sensor?
Replacing the gauge could be a costly job but it is seldom the gauge goes bad. More likely the temp gauge sending unit is at fault. Replacing the temp gauge sending unit would take less than 15 minutes.
A common problem with Honda cars is that the fuel gauge is stuck on full. This problem is solved by replacing the gauge cluster.
Bad gauge or defective coolant temperature sensor
why is the temperature gauge not moving on a 2007 Lincoln mkz
The gauge near the filter of the pool will tell you when the filter needs cleaning, the higher the gauge reads the more backpressure is caused by dirt in the filter, most gauges have a red section that indicate the need to clean the filter.
fuel and temperature gauge ? if so both gauges work on completing a ground circuit, ck around for a bad ground, or connection at fan switch
