What engine does your Ram have? This could be an indicator of a bad head gasket. If the sensor for the gauge is truly bad, the only way test that theory is to install an aftermarket gauge, use an infrared temp sensor on the water outlet hose or replace the coolant temperature sensor. If this doesn't help, you may need to take it to a mechanic and have them do a leakdown test. Failed headgasket can cause bizarre overheating issues. Good luck.

You may or may not have a problem with the fan. It should come on around 220 degrees or when the ac is running.
The temp on the gauge and the temp the computer sees can be 10 or 15 degrees different either way.
