    i just installed two new optimum red batteries in my 05 1500 silverado. After i installed them i noticed my temperature gauge doesn't work for the coolant.(radiator) everything else works . the gauge moves when you start the truck but doesn't move at all. just stays at 160... what can i do to fix issue??? need some help!!!!!!!!

    Not sure how you would have disturbed it by simply changing batteries but check the coolant temp sender and related wires to see if you somehow damaged the sender or pulled a wire from the connector. The sender is located on the front outboard side of the drivers side cyl head.
