Question help. 2001 crazy temp gauge problem with ac

I have a 2001 chevy impala and for some reason when i am driving without any a/c on (like with the heater or just the fan) the temp gauge is inoperative. it reads nothing. BUt when i turn on the a/c, a/c doesnt work for like 30 seconds. then all of a sudden my a/c works and so does my temp guage (reads normal not overheating). i have no idea what this is all about? any ideas? please help if by chance you no the problem

Look for broken or loose ground strap from engine to body/chassis. Or may be easier to just add one. (Be sure to clean to bare metal on both ends and use a minimum of 10ga wire)
