98 Ranger XLT temp gauge does not go down when turned off

OK, I have a 98 Ranger XLT 4 cyl, only 27750 miles. I have replaced the temp sending unit (twice)(two wire plug) that goes to the gauge on the cluster. here's the problem. You drive the truck temp goes to normal opt temp, you turn truck off and the temp gauge does not go down. If I unplug the temp sending unit with truck running the gauge goes down. plug it back in and turn truck off it stays up. If I let truck cool down for several hours gauge is still up but when I turn ignition on gauge drops?????? ANY IDEAS
