Cooling fan always on Ford Focus - what's the cause?

I own a 1998 Ford Focus, but have noticed the cooling fan coming on when the engine has barely warmed up. Can you tell me if there's a problem?

Yes. Probably the temp sensor switch. Get it checked.

Good to drive. Roomy cabin well thought through. Massive choice of used Focus at sensible prices. Better car than a similar aged Volkswagen Golf.
