Why doesn't the heater get hot and the temperature gauge is on hot?

I noticed that my heater was blowing cool air snd then the needle for the temperature went up to hot. When I turned off the heater the temperature went down some.

The engine did not overheat but the needle was on hot.

Sounds like a grounding issue; Check and clean all your grounds before going further, and coolant level.
