What you are saying does not make any sense.to open the drivers door.means nothing to the temp gage.was the car running at the time.need more info

Hell ! I know it does not make sense ! The truck only has door ajar as far as options , in the door but I suppose wiring might be there . I open or close the door , once in a while I notice the gauge drop when I open the drivers door , not while driving using any switches , only activated ? by the damn door .

I am having the same experience with my 2005 Dakota Laramie. Did you receive a solution?
