Temperature gauge may give incorrect readings on Ford Ranger

The temperature gauge on the instrument panel may fluctuate and give incorrect readings. If this happens, a new gauge and sender kit should be installed. The sending unit "sends" the information to the gauge.

Temperature gauge goes to overheat when driving but stays in the middle while idling. Battery runs down after sitting awhile
