temp gauge not working?????????

Hi, i am new on here my 92 e36 318is temp gauge is not working sum times it will stay just below hot when engine is cold or it will not even be on the scale. it seems its all or nuffink. i have replace temp sensor the 2nd 1 in the head i believe the first 1 closest to front of engine is for ecu??? a complete engine flush and new coolant plus new thermostat and also replaced the cluster gauge with a second hand 1. and of course checked all the fuses. heaters blow hot air fine. how would i test the wires? its been like it since i brought the car about year ago. but its now annoying me!! any help would be great.

also have done the cluster check i have heard about when you hold the trip button and turn key to pos 1 and the gauges go to max and back to zero this worked including the temp gauge. looks cool but i am still stuck!!!
