2004 Range Rover Temp. Gage is all the way to the end red

Engine Cooling problem
2004 Range Rover V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 60120 miles

My 2004 Range Rover radiator hose pope out of its place, the ring that holds in place became gave up apparently. I put the hose back with a screw tight clamp (as you know the ring that holds the hose fixed in place by the factory and does not have a screw). Then I added water while the engine was running and bleed it too. The Temp. Gage still goes to the end (red zone).
I am wondering what could be wrong. First I suspected that the problem is Thermostat, but that does not make sense, because I had the car cool off over night and when I started it this morning the gage went to the end on an absolutely cold engine right away.
Do you know what this what could be the problem and what do I need to do to fix this problem. I need to fix it temporarily so I can drive it to the shop to have them replace the hose.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

If its going to the red zone and its not overheating-check and test the coolant temperature sensor or the engine temperature sender gauge switch to include its wiring.

Moerski, had the same issue happen to me on my 2004 Range Rover. The hose popped off and I re-clamped it, added fluid, and the needle stays in the red even at immediate startup.

Could you let me know what fixed your issue? It's driving me mad.

Thank You,
Keith
