Temperature sender unit fails are fairly common. Not sure where yours would be (they're usually on the side of the engine block facing the battery).

Might be best to pop your chassis number into Peugeot's Servicebox website to get the diagrams.

Peugeot Service Box

Select English then register (its free)

Log in and put in your chassis number then browse the lovely diagrams.

Hi,
Leave it ticking over on the drive and watch the temperature gauge and cooling fans. Do the fans come on or does it overheat.
I had an issue with a 1998 motorhome (2.5TD), red light coming on.
The fan sensor is located on the nearside bottom of the radiator.
I changed the sensor and it made no difference.
I then found that the loom connector to the sensor had corroded pins so was not contacting the sensor. I soldered wires to the sensor and then crimped these to the loom wires.
Suggest you get underneath the vehicle and remove the connector and look into it with a torch. You are looking for broken pins within the connector. On mine the pressure tab that holds the pin in place had come away.

My issue does not get a mention on this page but there is a lot of info here
RADIATOR FANS MODIFICATIONS in the Peugeot Boxer 1.9ltr Diesel Engine Intercooler Van Page 2
It is mostly about the temperature control and tendency to get too hot rather than hitting the red light like yours did.

Just editing this post as I found a couple of pictures

Default high temp warning light(servicebox)

have tried to access the sevicebox ,but during registration as i am not a trader or peugeot dealer a could not gain access into the site,it informed me that a public service is due soon.Am i missing something out ?or do i need to open a peugeot garage!!.
i think i have located the sender after reading one of the previous threads,we are due to go for a ride this weekend ,i have lowerd the level in the tank to just above "min",just to see if being on "max" may of interfeared with things,if problem persists ,the sender will have to be changed first thing.

Apologies, did not notice in your original post that you said the temperature gauge was OK with just the warning light coming on. Just wondered why the interest in the sender, but now I understand.
