Default Temperature Needle and LED brake lights

For some odd reason, my 11 Aveo has been acting strange with the needles, after i put LED bulbs in the tail lights. It started making the radio go dim when i stepped on the brakes, , so I took the bulbs out, and the radio is fine... But Now, as of today, my temperature needle is marking as if the car is a 3rd of the way hot. Coolant is fine, liquids are fine, no problems. Now about 30 mins ago ( 1255am as i type this) the temp needle is at the last white line, before the red line. But, car is running fine, coolant is flowing no problem, and the fans are on. When I turn off the car, the needle does not go all the way down, when the car is off, past the C mark...

Previously, the needle would get stuck between the cold and first temperature line when i turned off the car.


Sorry for the typos, i just ran to get my best friend from the hospital, and noticed that. ( thankfully she is fine just a muscle spasm)
Any idea to what that is?

All answers appreciated.

Have you had the battery load tested and checked the alternator output?

Then the gauge appears to have an issue since it never goes back to cold.

Well i took out the cluster. I noticed when i put the cables back in, something makes the needles go crazy when the purple plug is put back in. So I put everything normal, and it worked fine. Until today when it did the raise again. Is this something normal for the gauges to act like that on chevys? I had a similar problem on my 94 Astro and noticed other Chevys have gauge problems also....

the cluster panel can go bad and typically people find replacements in a salvage/junk yard

Seems like the gauge or the temp sensors is the culprit in your problem.
