Temp guage stopped working (briefly)

So as I was driving down the fwy I noticed my temp gauge was not working (it was all the way at the bottom).

After stopping and then re-starting the car it worked again.

My car is a 2003 9-5 3.0t ( V6)

code is (P0116)

can some give guidance
thank in advance

If your car was a 4 cyl., I'd say replace the thermostat and temp sender. Being a v6, start with the temp sender. If the problem continues, go after the t stat. Pretty common problem in a 9-5

Actually its usually the stat. the way Saab designed he system is that if the stat is not working, 9 not allowing the engine to get up to temp in the right amount of time) the gauge is programmed to drop out..

That said replacing the stat is hard in a V6, so start withe the sensor
