    Scan with VCDS or check wiring at the CTS. There is a way of getting the dash dials to do a self-test. But I can't remember the process.

    Coolant temp sensor has probably failed. Very common problem.

    You really need to have a look in VCDS/VAGCOM engine measuring blocks to see if the ECU is getting a correct signal from the CTS.
    Even if your stat was stuck fully open I would still expect the temp to get high enough to register on the gauge.
    Does your heater get hot?

    Change the temp sensor as you say you have heating as it is very easy to do but make sure you have a bottle of G13 coolant to top up after......very common problem, but usually it sticks to the 70c marking and never reaches 90c.
