Engine Temp Gauge Dead

Cranked up this morning and headed out from Ft. Hall Idaho towards Montana. Looked down and noticed the engine temp gauge was not working at all. Pulled off at next rest stop and checked everything I knew to check. Checked for loose wires under dash etc. Cranked and shut off engine several times (this always reset gauges when I was having VDC problems). Still no action from temp gauge. It appears the gauge has failed. Anyone out there had a similar failure? Chassis is 2001 FCC with 300 Cat. I'm going to call Gaffney in the morning. Everything is running fine but I am on a long trip with a lot of mountain driving and really need the gauge to be functional on climbs.

Thanks, WM

You say " VDC" so I'll assume Freightliner chassis.
Here is a sensor location diagram, and what I have on gauge testing.
