Question Dashboard fualt?

Hi all,
I've a Sagum dash in my Laguna thats had a fault for a while now, and i've had enough No matter what the temp the engine is at, the guage reads half way! Question it the guage or the sensor?? There's two on the engine(Volvo 2ltr 16V), one on the thermostat housing(replaced) and the other on the block above the flywheel. I,ve tested the second of the two and found that when i disconnect it the temp drops to zero and if i earth it the temp goes back to half way instead of the "OH MY GOD-THE ENGINES GOING TO BLOW" warning level!! Therefore, i suspect the guage. Is there a cheap fix???
Also, is this all linked to the engine management as there has been a noticable increase in fuel consumption.

All help appreciated
Currently in Dangan's garage:
1998 Laguna I 2ltr 16v
