Turn signal glow and temp gauge

This is an interesting observation and I would like to know if others have seen it also.

This problem has been there for quite some time and I have yet to resolve only because it has not prevented me from driving the car. Do not the exact conditions that cause it but from time to time when the right turn signal is engaged the temp gauge goes "nuts" until the signal is disengaged. The indication that this will happen is preceded by the temp needle creeping higher and at night a visible glow in the right turn indicator on the dash panel. Then the strange behavior will stop sometime for minutes and sometimes for days to happen again. So far I have not been able to pinpoint the exact circumstances when it happens. Also the temp needle sometimes approaches the top end of the range and I am afraid the engine might overheat. I have changed the thermostat to no avail. I was thinking of changing the temprature sensor in the thernostat housing and the temp sensor on the radiator. Any thoughts?

i'm an electronics tech and that's about the only thing i can think of too. go over a bump or something and it shorts out, and a bump or two later, it seperates the wires again.if you figure it out, let us know.

the temp gauge goes hot when the ground is broken aswell.. and the way the signal works is a relay... which makes and breaks a ground
