When I disconnected the plug from the sensor and shorted one wire to ground than the needle of temperature gauge goes all the way up which means that part is working.
Whwn the plug is connected the temperature gauge is not working, how can i check what is the problem

Thank you

from the test you have done so far,it sounds like you have a faulty sensor.

I disconnected the plug from the sensor, then with ohm meter tested the sensor as the car was running and getting warmer the resistance started to decrease (decrease or increase i can't remember).
It looks like the sensor is good but i am not 100% sure.
What could be other problem for temperature gauge not working?

Thank you
