Turn the to the on position, the check engine light should come on for a few seconds then turn off, if there is no light then the bulb is either blown or someone has removed it cause it is on all of the time while driving.

But why is it not giving a code then for the not operating temp gauge?

There are the coolant temp sensors and senders, the gauge uses a sender not a sensor, the temp gauge is not part of the ECM so there for no code for a faulty gauge.

Oh okay. Thank you. Just it lists that there is a code for it not operating properly. So i assumed that there would be code for my gauge not working as i thought was sender.

Just remember, sensors are for computer, senders are for gauges.
