Default Temperature Gauge help

Just realised I had a MOT booked for Wednesday so went to check the car which I haven't used for a few months.

When I turned the ignition on before starting the car I noticed the temperature gauge went straight to max. Any ideas ? Its been so long since working on the car my mind has gone blank .

The car starts/runs ok but do not want to do any damage if it is more than the sensor. I can always rebook the MOT.

cheers for any replies


Nick

Sounds like the sensor wire is grounded or a faulty gauge or sender.
