Temperature gauge playing up - Help!!!

Hay, Iíve got an AP1, but since getting her a couple of months ago the temp gauge has never gone above one bar.
I changed the sensor switch behind the engine/beside the bulkhead, but this has not resolved the problem.
The engine is defiantly getting up to temperature and the fans kick in when she gets to hot but it would be nice to know how hot.
Before I book her in with the gold finger Honda mechanics, does anyone have any DIY tips to try out?

If you know somebody who has a multimeter and knows how to use it. I think that he can hook it up to the sensor lead and vary the resistance while you monitor the gauge to see if it rises; thus, you can determine whether or not the gauge is faulty.

(I may/probably don't know WTF I'm talking about.)

this may sound dumb, but are you sure the coolant system is filled appropriately and has been bled?
