Have a look at your earth points and the 14pin connector to the dash binnacle , if it’s been stood and got damp inside, you may well have corrosion to clean off

If you have a multimeter then measure the voltage across one of the outer nuts and the centre nut that secure the temperature Gauge, should be around 10v . The temp gauge centre nut is chassis earth. A lower reading could indicate a problem with the regulator, the regulator socket, etc.
