Sounds like the wire coming from the coolant temperature sensor is shorted to ground or the sensor itself is shorted. Unplug the sensor and turn on the ignition. If the temperature gauge now reads 100°F (cold) it's the sensor. If no change, look for a bare spot on the wire going to the sensor plug. HTH. -Jim
