Peugeot 206 Cooling fan always on.. ?

My cooling fan is permanently on when I start the car, and gauge on Dash goes to Red too as soon as car is started. (It is NOT overheating, no loss in performance, no leaks) Its a 206LX 1.4 petrol 2002 I suspect the coolant temp sensor, sensors? If so are they easy to replace DIY and where can I get them?

Yes, it's an easy replacement. Just put a wrench or socket on it and unscrew it. Get a replacement at the dealer, or any parts store should have it or could order it for you. Usae a wrap of teflon tape (or plumber's putty) on the threads of the new unit to prevent leaks.
Location varies, but it will be on top of the engine in a coolant passage. Check around the thermostat housing.

Peugeot 206 temp gauge issue

Make sure the coolant level is correct. If it is, could be a bad water pump or a clogged radiator. Check the radiator to see if it looks like the inside has a lot of scale and deposits. Remove some coolant if necessary. If the radiator looks relatively clean , could be a bad pump.

I have a Peugeot 206 1400cc and I seem to have a problem with the cooling fan. As the car moves cooling fan comes on and temperature gauge goes to red and the stop sign appears. Then slowly the gauge goes...

firstly you need to check the coolant level and make sure there are no air bubbles in the cooling circuit
secondly the thermostat could be damaged and stays in the closed position
thirdly the cooling radiator could be clogged and it must be flushed or replaced
you have to take into accont that it could be a faulty message sent by faulty temperature sensor or bad connector of the senser
so you need to open the hood and decide, is the engine very hot or is it normal but still the fan is on

Engine cooling fan not cutting in Peugeot 206 2002 Cooling fan and motor have been replaced with main dealer parts

Try the cooling fan switch, it looks like a large brass nut with wires on it on the thermostat housing or radiator.
To test, pull off the wires and connect together, turn on ignition and the fans should cut in.
If they don't it could be the relay, fuse or broken wire.
The switch is easy to replace, unscrew and rescrew in the new one. Connect the wires, not important which way the wires go, and refill coolant.
