95 Maxima temp gauge goes to half (normal) when power is applied. Fall's to cold when power is cut off. No other problem's w/ gauge. Heat, operating temp is also fine. Sending unit or short? Thanks. John

If its reading half way thats not overheating. You could need a coolant temp. Sendsor.

Let's try again. Gauge spring's to half at once upon cranking car. It does not creep to its correct (half) position. Thanks.

I would replace the coolant temp sensor. Try disconnecting the temp. Sensor. Then watch the gauge then youll have you answer. Looks like a nice car. Ty for using 2carpros

As mentioned, no luck disconnecting temp sensor. Gauge still springs to half when powered. Is my next step the gauge?

Youll need to remove the speedo head and unplug it all the gauges if they return to zero there good
