The temperature gauge is hardly a gauge at all. It's programmed to show actual below ~160F? (not sure the exact number but it's not the actual normal temp) and then it just sits in the middle all the time after that. It won't go above until the actual temp crosses a threshold value.

My 99 explorer had an oil pressure "gauge" that was operated off a simple switch. It was either 0 or 50%.
