You've either not plugged the temp sender back in, broken the temp sender, or you're airbound and not circulating coolant where the temp sender is located. I'm betting on you've lost the temp sender signal for whatever reason due to the check engine light. I'm betting if you pull the codes, it'll say it's an implausible temp.
