Installed new gauge in cluster and new temperature sensor it has a 3 pin connector the computer reads temperature but nothing to the cluster car runs great no engine codes checked all wireing and grounds no problems if there was a problem in wireing wouldnt the computer see that and not read engine temperature

Hi,thanks for your question.The manual gives resistance values of the gage if those readings are good the next step is the replacement of the printed circuit on the back of the dash,since you replaced the gage and sensor already we would assume both components are good so the printed circuit would need to be changed out.Because you can read the temperature the wiring must be good from the sensor through the engine harness,thanks for your time.
