Question about Peugeot 207

1 Answer

Thermo fan Hi, 4 yr old Peugeot 207 auto wagon with under 26,000 kms. Recently noticed the thermo fan keeps running for up to 15 minutes after switching the engine off - even if the engine has been run just for a couple of minutes and barely had time to heat up. New battery installed yet during the last 3 weeks have had to call roadside assistance twice for a jumpstart - battery tested and works fine but being drained of charge. My regular mechanic recommends returning to the dealership and that they should fix thermo fan problem under warranty due to such low mileage on the engine - I have a 5 yr extended warranty but never had the car serviced at the dealership due to the ridiculous prices they charge. It's been serviced by my own mechanic, using genuine Peugeot parts. Any suggestions how to sort this out?

A condition of warranty is usually to not only have the car serviced at the correct intervals but also to be able to provide proof of that. If you go to the dealership and ask them to fix your fan they might not ask to see the proof. You might get away with it...

In Europe, vehicle manufacturers and dealers are forced by law to honour warranties as car owners have the right to use any independent garage or workshop, though it still should be documented and proof of genuine parts being used is good politics.

If the dealer refuses there is no reason to waste the journey - you could question a mechanic about the likely cause of the trouble, ask the parts guy if they have been selling a lot of something to do with your problem.

SOURCE: engine fan keeps running

It's possible that the fan control relay is intermittently sticking causing the fans to run continuously. This can overheat and subsequently blow the fuse. Try replacing the relay and see if anything changes.

Hope this helps.

Glad to hear that you are all fixed up!

The sunroof leak is caused by a blockage in the drain tubes. Please make sure that your dealer cleans the sunroof drains.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance. Thanks!

Unit has a draw somewhere that needs to be addressed. I have found the auto starts sometimes can cause this. But if the draw is through the negative side it could be tough. You should take it to the dealer and have them perform a draw test on the entire vehicle.

I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.

Viscous fan not coming on 1999 peugeot 406


If this vehicle is a 99 then its a electric fan ,the viscous fan version is alot older and has a fan belt that goes around a corner ,yes it has a pulley arrangement that allows the long belt to turn through 90 degrees with a viscous fan and this version is about 20+ yrs old ,if this is a 99 model then their is a thermo switch in the radiator but the later versions use a sensor and a relay ,If vehicle used in a city then you can always fit a manual overide switch as well .Nice motors these cars though they run for ever and a day

My bmw 323i overheats about after 2 hours of driving my heaters work and i dont know why.


check if thermostat is stuck open as too much flow can cause this. start car cold and see how long top radiator hose takes to heat up. shoud stay cold for 3-4 minutes.
if thats ok check thermo fan operation- run can in drive way at idle for 20 + minutes untill fan starts, keep an eye on temp guage.

Electric fans do not run ...radiator cooling fans will not come on. I have installed new relays (3), new thermo-sensor and put in new thermostat and water pump but cannot run fans unless airconditioning is...


Che if you installed the right thermo sensor, check for broken wires and if the car has the wrong coolant sensor or the wrong thermo sensor it will not work right.

I have a 95 240sx, it keeps getting hot. I change the thermo, water pump, still not solved, is there way to test to see if I have a head gasket problem.


take the thermo out as a last resort... check the fan and make sure it still clicks on... it is possible that the temp guage is broken, although unlikely
