hahaha, I just had the same problem...your temp sensor is either broken or just unplugged...

For me, I hit a tire on the road when I had my old bumper...It tore off the driver's side wheel well and looked like it cut my temp sensor in half.

I just bought a new one, installed it yesterday (thanks Tischer) and bingo, good as new...jumped from -40 to +93
