99 Dodge Durango

I have a 99 dodge durango. when I put on the brakes the temp gage goes from normal to cold REALLY fast, then after a few seconds it goes back to normal. What can I do to fix this. All fluids are good. Is it something my hubby can fix?

Yes, your hubby can fix this if he can check the wiring between the brake system and the temperature gauge circuit with a multimeter.

There is usually a large ground wire between the engine and the body of the car. Make sure it is intact and making a good connection at both ends.
