Peugeot 309 Style 'STOP' Light issue

    I just bought a Peugeot 309 Style (1.4) as my first car. Runs fine,
    just had a new MOT put on it past with an advisory for the wheels which
    are getting changed tomorrow anyway...
    But, After a short drive the 'STOP' light comes on, and without a
    manual I'm alittle concerned at what this may mean.
    I've found people saying it could be oil, but pressure and heat is
    nominal and it's about 3/4 between the minimum and maximum marks on the
    Coolant is at the right level the heat gauge is right and says it's not
    too hot but not cold.. everything has been check but still don't know.

    The only problem (other then the ash tray being loose) is the gear box
    is a little sticky, clutch is fine, but it takes some effect to move
    the gear stick, not to engage the gears just move the stick... Could
    that be it?

    All help will be appreciated greatly.

    I had two issues with STOP light in past. One was related to temperature
    sensor, the other to oil compression. Buth times STOP light went on in
    series with another light (temperature or oil). For the temperature related
    problem it turned out that the sensor was faulty and after the replacement
    the lights stayed off. The other time I had one spark plug stopped working
    and slowly the fuel accumulated in the oil, diluted the oil and cause it to
    leak more quicly (I also have slight oil leakage) that in turn affected the
    compression. Again both lights went on. Probably there might be other
    warning lights connected in series with the STOP light.

    Hope that helps

    Yes yes, After a quick check around it is indeed because the heat
    sensor is faulty!

    Thanks muchly.
