If you've checked the engine earth, and have earthed the wire to the temp sender, and get no reading I'm assuming it's a broken wire somewhere along the line. Try checking for continuity of the wire within the engine bay before you go pulling the dash out. Might even be a badly crimped connector.

There's something to keep you busy for a while. :-)
