2.8jtd 2003 temp gage problems

Hi People

I have a 2.8jtd ducato the temp gage is stuck half way up, when you turn it on the needle goes half way up and stays there, disconnected the sender unit it goes back down, change the temp sensors plug in the new one it does the same shorted out the two terminals and the gage goes right up so think the gage is ok,
Any ideas where I try next
Thanks for any ideas

Keffs

Had the same thing happen on my own JTD. Remove the instrument panel complete to gain access to the rear of the gauges and then clean the terminals to the temperature gauge, and Iíll bet that will cure the problem.

Hi
Even though the gage works if you short out the sensor and goes back to cold if you disconnect the sensor

Just a thought if you replace the temp sensor do you have to tell the ecu.
