Overheating indicator showing on a Xsara
I have problem with fan in my Xsara. Computer test shows that there is a radiator fan problem but the fan is working fine.

It starts at 92C but at the same time STOP indicator comes up. I replaced thermostat and temp sensor but it didn't help. What can cause it?

I would have said faulty engine temp sensor/sender switch, but you say you replaced that? Could you have missed off a wire? Is it properly earthed?

Enjoyable to drive, with good handling and a smooth, pliant ride. Roomy estates better than five-door hatchbacks. The 167bhp coupe is seriously quick.
