Default 91' Acura Legend temp guage shows very hot ?

but the engine is not hot. Electric fans at radiator are running, no radiator fluid consumption. Before the guage reaches the red zone, the heater is producing heat but after gauge is in the red zone, heater blows cold air. I am completely baffled. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We were told that if the sensor is unpluged, then it should go to C (cold) all the way down. When it is jumped, the needle should go all the way up to H (hot). A friend at a tire shop helped look at it, and did the test, and the needle did what was explained above. So we are thinking that the sensor may not be the problem..??? Also, this is my daughter's car. She drove the car about 45 minutes, and the heater was working, then all of a sudden the heater started blowing cold as if the air conditioner was on. Later she left our house with the heater on, and drove about 20 minutes, and the heater would not get hot. It blew cold as if the air conditioner was on. Which is very odd, becuase the guage is showing the car is ovrheating, which it is not.
