I made a function in Wordpress, which should update one field status to 0. But no changes are made to the database. I don't know what is the reason. Can someone please help. I tried looking into wordpress own wp-db.php, and seen that the same array is going there as well.

        function updateData($temp_array){
            global $wpdb;
            $temp_array = array('status', '0');
            echo $wpdb->update( 'wp_testing_options', $temp_array, array( 'id' => 1 ) );

$temp_array = array('status', '0');

should be

$temp_array = array('status' => '0');
