An accurate temperature gauge will always fluctuate because the temperature in the engine fluctuates.

Usually the only time this is really noticeable is when the engine has been working hard and suddenly has to wait at a junction or similar and the gauge can rise considerably.

You didn't mention by how much the gauge fluctuates?
As long as it remains approximately in the normal zone it is acceptable but if it climbs into the hot zone or falls into the cold zone it is not acceptable and the cause should be investigated as soon as possible.

Check the schematic for it to see just what is feeding the circuit . And do not overlook the ignition switch circuit - on may cars that socket is dead unless the ignition is on.

There can be all sorts of other DIY's from draining, flushing and refilling system, thermostat replacing and buying a new car.
Mine from City Peugeot was going to be a £2000 fix and they didn't even know what was wrong.It was just a hail Mary.
Other things that beat them was the rear light cluster not working - £400 fix, was just a loose fuse in the glove box.
The 26mpg when it should be 43, they just say is in the ok bracket, even though I reported it within 2 months of buying and it was sold as 43mpg.
Best advice - do not buy another Peugeot. I now cycle everywhere unless it is raining. I stay local and cant afford another car. Thats all fair I suppose.

If any of four abs sensors is not working then abs light comes up and subsequently affects car's stability (esp). OBD diagnostic scanner will find out that which sensor is causing it. If all sensors are fine then most probably there is a problem with your abs/esp unit in engine bay.
PEUGEOT announced a problem with the 308 vehicles and it has been identified that the operation of the ABS/ESP braking unit may be affected by the ingress of water. Previously, recall are announced to be affected vehicles to reinforce the resistance of the ABS/ESP unit to water.

The engine fan is activated by coolant temperature, and it is normal for it to turn on when the coolant temperature increases. Be certain that your coolant level is correct, and expect it to engage from time to time, especially in warmer weather.

Check engine oil could of been triggered by a number of things. Putting in more oil is rarely a cure. You getting poor mileage when that light comes on is more of a clue. When car Computer has what can be many false readings caused by a sensor or a mechanical problem, the computer tries to fix the problem within the range of the sensors ability..i.e more gas or more air, advance timing... slow down water flow to raise coolant temperature. When the problem is beyond the sensors ranges, the computer will go into "limp" mode, which will let the engine run, but all the sensors are not engaged so efficiency is the last thing you will get. You need a real diagnostic apparatus hooked to your engine by a good mechanic, and see if the the compression ratio, valves, injectors etc. are running properly and that also your sensors are functional. Never trust theose handheld units to tell you the truth. They can't diagnose mechanical problems like a valve not closing or a broken ring etc.

The locking mechanism is on the inside of the rear doors near the lock itself. Its just a little slider switch. Once you have located it, its just a matter of moving it one way until the child locks are off. All the best

This is a generic warning message on Peugeot and Citroen cars.

It generally means that there is a fault within the emissions circuit. However it does not necessarily mean that there is a fault with the CAT or lambda sensors.

It could be one of many sensors or faults that causes the ECU to detect a fault and could led to this error message been displayed.
p3011 = fuel pump relay short to positive

But my advice is to clear the fault code. If it appears again then change the fuel filter and go from there. If the problem persist then as I said chec your emission circuit.

Engine is not getting enough oil to build the pressure. Either downpipe in sump is partially blocked or the oil pump is not good or oil filter is congested. I once opened the sump and guess what " Sump pipe was just screwed with one screw with a gap on other side causing the oil not being sucked properly". There is a pressure tester method just google it and try to find the bad oil circulation point.
