2005 6.0 false overheating

Hello i have a 2005 f350 dually 6 speed, it has 114xxx on it, today i was driving and "check gauges" came up on the display and the fan clutch engaged, everything looked good then after a minute the temp gauge topped all the way out into the red so i pulled over and shut it down, popped open the hood to find everything looked fine, coolant level was at the min mark and the engine wasn't really that hot. so i got in it and started it up temp gauge went back to normal. but the fan clutch was still engaged. about a minute or so later it did the same thing. can anyone help me with what this could be?

May check wiring harness for rubbing, I know there have been issues where the wires run across the top of the engine they will rub and short out causing several problems.

I have the same issue on my 06, but its never done it driving down the road it usually dose it when im climbing a grade with a trailer seems that the temp goes up towards 220 and then my fan brings the temp back down to 212 or so and sometimes the light will come on and then the gauge pegs out but my chip still reads normal temp, ive yet to figure out the problem
