How's your thermostat? If it's stuck open, the car will run really cool in cold weather.

Give the sensor plug 12V and it should go to cold, and then as you did short it to ground and it should go to hot.

Other than that it may be working as said.

So when you ground the sender lead it swings full one way and when you apply 12V+ to the sender lead it swings completely the other way?
