Hi,

This is on a 1999 Pug 206 1.1L (non air con)

Does anyone have a temperature sensor on their thermostat housing ?

After my radiator cracked, I found a new replacement - a radiator from the 206 diesel.
It's about a foot wider, but the fan panel can accomodate this - so I thought better becuse the fan would not need to come on as much as it did.
Indeed - it is better, the temperature has never crept over 90 even when sat in traffic in hot weather.
Unfortunately for me, there is no fan switch port on this model, as I think the ECU takes care of that in the diesel model.
I've rigged a 90 degree temperature switch clamped near the top of the rad, but would prefer to use the blanked tapped port on the thermostat housing.

Does anyone know what thread this is - and what sensor fits it.
If you have one on your car - what model & engine is it so I can buy one for that.

Thank you.

found out what it is -
Part No. 1338.66.
Sensor for Air-con.
Bought from Ebay for £3.50 ;)

Thread size is M14 x 1.25 (which is a bit unusual as it's a spark-plug thread :nono: )

I am going to use it to control the coolant fan, and as it's a thermistor (gives varied resistance dependent on temperature), I can build a little relay circuit with an adjuster on it so I can set the temp to what I want it to turn on at :)
Should be more reliable being in the coolant rather than bolted onto the rad.

Wouldn't it be easier if Peugeot used the same radiator, and same fan switch for all of it's models ?

But they're not in the game of "let's make servicing and spare parts easy" - no , they're in the game of "let's make them all different and spare parts bl##dy Expensive. While we're at it, we'll make around 50 different types of brake pads - so nobody has any stock when you need them. :nono:
The weirdest connectors on earth - and each model different.
OOOh - make sure the coolant pump is powered by the cambelt - that way if the pump siezes - it'll knacker the engine too :D .
Peugeot note to self - Position sensitive circuit boards as close to passengers footwell as possible, alternatively, connect with stiff looms to areas of vibration - like the ECU - held on with one bolt.

Designed mode of failure - I hate it :mad:

Yeah tell me about it, like the "sealed for life" indicator relays, whoever decided that was a good idea needs a good slapping!

Suppose its anything to make extra money these days though! :(

But they're not in the bold of "let's accomplish application and additional locations easy" - no , they're in the bold of "let's accomplish them all altered and additional locations bl##dy Expensive. While we're at it, we'll accomplish about 50 altered types of anchor pads - so cipher has any banal if you charge them...

I now have a supply of indicator relays for the 206 - and the method to replace them.
I can ship them out in pairs if you're handy at soldering, or can repair them here by return of post.
