SOURCE: location heat sensor for radiator electric fan

My 1990 senson/switch is actually in the lower rad. hose just behind the rad. It's hard to see from up top. They have a metal pipe in in the hose as if the hose was cut and the metal pipe with a bung is installed.
Weird, but that's where it is....

Citroen troubleshooting

I had similar problems 2 times with the automatic heat / AC module.
I suppose your system is automatic too.

First time the commands were working erratically acting weird. Sometimes was heating at full capacity blowing heads off. At other times it was not starting at all.
The whole module had to be replaced.

Second time if the car stayed in the sun the AC was heating, after starting the engine and cooling started only after achieving greater speeds (above ~60km/h). Whenever the speed decreased the system began to heat again eventually. It turned out that the engine cooling fan was broken and had to be replaced. That fan cools both the engine radiator and the AC radiator. If it is faulty your engine might be at risk of overheating at low speeds.

Does the radiator fan keep running even after switching off the engine

The temperature actuated switch is stuck in the ON position if the cooling fan(s) continue to operate after the engine has cooled down. Locate the defective sensor switch and replace it to eliminate the problem. This could be continuous or intermittent and either way if the switch is faulty it should be replaced.

Fan cooling system of an engine v.w

A thermal switch controls the radiator fan and if the temperature of your radiator is above a preset temperature value, the thermal switch will close and the fan will turn on and will stay on even after you turn the motor off, until your radiator temperature cools down. I wouldn't worry about.
