Default Temp gauge does not go past 1/4 mark and sometimes the car idles at 1500RPM on park?

The 2001 SL2 temp gauge goes just a bit past the 1/4 mark even on city driving or with AC and never moves past the mark.The car sometimes also idles at 1500RPM when on park but as soon as you turn it off and back on it will idle at like 800RPM and stays there steadily( I am not sure if these things are related)
I thought about the thermostat being stuck open but the car warms up pretty quickly and it should take a long time to warm up if it was stuck open. Today I changed the ECTS with a brass one(I think the old one was also brass since it was not round at the tip) but the same thing happens. Also, the high idle only happens sometimes and I am not sure what triggers it under normal driving, I do know that if I try to bug down the car manually by moving the throttle cable it will do this every time until I turn the car off then on again. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.
