My engine cooling fan is coming on too often, even after a short drive and with the temperature gauge hardly having moved from the bottom.
I assume the fans switch is separate from the gauge sensor?
Could it just be the switch needs replacing?

it shouldn`t cause you any problems, have you got air-con on, and enough coolant in expansion tank

The coolant level is correct and yes the AC is on but this morning the radiator fan came on as soon as I started the engine. It did go off again after a few minutes and then returned to its pattern of turning on frequently when stationary which it never used to do.
So I do suspect the switch is failing.
Can anyone point out where this switch is on the 1.6dci engine (2013 model)?
I have found a Youtube video ( of this but I am not convinced it is the same engine and I am not convinced about its location.
