Hi.

 

Looks like this is a simple case of a bad coolant sensor ,

 

This sensor works with your fan system replace this item and you should be ok.

 

If not please get back to me.

 

Kind regards Greg

i'll get a new coolant sensor from Peugeot tomorrow see if it makes a difference.
just to clarify is this the sensor that seat on top of the cylinder or is it the one on the right side of the cylinder?

hi creg. Fitted a new coolant sensor but still doing the same.
the fan comes on even late than before around 95c but as soon as i switch the car off the fan goes off too.(and as the fan is off the temperature start climbing again).i am sure most other car the fan would still run until the engine is cool. The weird thing is when i disconnect the coolant temperature and start the car and switch is off straight after, the fan will run with the ignition off and keys out for a good 5 min.

Hi .

You will have to take it to a shop that has the Peugeot scan tool
to check the live data to see what is out of the parameters and causing this issue ,
normally when you have a short or grounded line this will set a malfunction code.

So as not to throw parts at your car to get the cooling system working
have it hooked up to a diagnostic tool to see what is actually happening .

For further assistance please get back to me,

Kind regards Greg
