So either the sender is not sending a signal, or the stepper motor on the gauge has failed, try disconnecting the temp sender turn on the key and watch the temp gauge, it should start to move, don't let go to far as this type of gauge can go all the way around with an open circuit, if it does move then replace the sender, if it don't move then you will have to remove the instrument cluster to check the gauge wiring and stepper motor.
