temp gauge not working

most temp sensor work on a simple thermister which has a lower resistance at higher temps. since yours isnt getting to temp it sounds like you have high resistance in the wiring or the sensor isnt grounded well. check resistance between sensor wire and gauge.

YJ cluster's are notorious for going bad. Too many nights with the top down=condensation which= corrosion. Could be what dooder said, could be the gauge takin a dump.
