The temperature gauge does not need to show overheating. There is a fan switch that would turn the cooling fans on when a certain temperature is breached to activate it. It is normal if the fan operations is only intermittent and not each and everytime the engine is turned off.

Ensure the coolant level in the radiator is correct. Check when engine is cold.
