It could be the temperature sending unit does the car have enough power when you first start it?

Can be 1 of 2 things: 1) Your thermostat's burned out, and simply needs replacement. 2) you have an electrical wiring issue where the line's got a short. Likely, it's the first one. Get this fixed before the situation reverses itself!

We replaced the thermostat and the car is still saying that it is hot. When I read that it could be the wiring, I noticed that the light for my daytime running lights isn't showing up at all on my dash. My dad knows a lot about cars, could he fix the wiring by himself or do I need to take her to the garage?
