Default Temp gauge not working, 'check gauge' lamp lit

'95 XLT 2wd temp gauge doesn't budge. I've ruled out the sender. 'Check gauge' lamp lights but only after engine is warm, never when cold, then periodically goes out and comes on while driving. All other gauges function normally. Likely bad temp gauge? The 'check gauge' lamp is to warn of either low fuel, low oil pressure or high coolant temp. So it's an idiot light for the idiot lights. I'm thinking that the temp gauge is sending the check gauge lamp a false signal, anyone seen this?
Thanks,
Richard

Does not do low fuel that I am aware of and there are two sensors for coolant temp btw. One that operates the gauge and the one that operates the fan/ECU Temp information.

If you need it I can send you trouble shooting .PDF from service manual for 93-97
