Temperature gauge messed up/ maybe messing with heater?

Hi all, i just purchased my first prelude and liking it! But I'm having a problem with my temp gauge which i think is in turn making my heater not work. When i bought it the gauge didn't make any movements. It just stays at the bottom as if the car was off. So i drained coolant and replaced the thermostat (which seemed twice as big as the one i put in from AutoZone) now the gauge moves. Just it bounces all over the place constantly. I can upload a video if you wish. The car does not overheat as far as i can tell.
Then there's my heater, the a/c was deleted by po btw. The heater blows outside temperature air on all settings. Coolants full, good thermostat and engine runs like normal. Its it the gauge messing with the sensors for the heater or something? Or is my heater core going? I can't find the heater core in this, otherwise i would feel it. Just wondering your thoughts on it, thanks.

Not a problem with the gauge. check behind the engine where the lines run into the car and make sure when you move the temp control that it pulls that cable which opens the valve to the heater core.
