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

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

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