Temp guage quit working

My temperature gauge (92 YJ 2.5L) broke a long time ago...just lays flat. After overheating and replacing the radiator I figure I should try and finally fix it.

What's the first thing I should replace, look at?

Fuse, temp sensor?

mine broke years ago in my 87 and when we looked at it all it was easier to install an aftermarket one under that dash then fix the original so if you dont mind an aftermarket one it might be easier to do that

It is most likely your fuse or temp sensor. They are both cheap to replace so that is where I would start.
