lol, well, you have a break somewhere in the wire...get some diagrams and start checking the wire whereever u can, or if nothing else just splice in your own wire

ok, i foung part of the problem, the actuall end that plugs into the sensor was bad, i cut that off and spliced in a wire and grounded it at that jumps the gauge to hot, which it never did before but when i hook it up to the sensor nothing, i recently replace the temp sensor (second time) i still have the old one. when i installed it i used teflon tape, could this causing the gauge not to work? I am ready to pop.... somebody must had cured this problem HHEELLPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
