Either the fan temperature sensor is reading wrong or the gauge/gauge sensor are faulty

Mine will eventually shut off. Just seems like it takes way to long. I have about a 40 min ride home, and yesterday at every single stop light I would check and it'd still be running even with the guage on the cool side it was running, I'll definitely check out the switch

Thanks! I'll probably start with the fan sensor
