Fan warning light

I have a newbie question,driving down interstate Sat morning and noticed the Fan warning light on,quick of gauges revealed temps 185-190 water and oil,all seemed ok. When i got home and went to shut down and just turned ign switch one click (not all way to off) the fans were running.Later after cool down i checked tank and level is fine.All wires connected to senders on tank. Whats the problem,sender?
Thanks in advance.

check the connectors as this is an older car and they can become worn, brittle etc.

check they are indeed clean.

Thinking this is minor at best...like you said..sender. Might want to swap one, keep one not connected

Are you sure it was a warning light? The reason I ask, is because whenever the fan is on, the light in the upper left dash comes on. It goes off whenever the fan is turned off. I'm not sure if that's the light you are talking about. If it is, it isn't a warning, but instead, it is a reminder that the fan is "on".

I re-read your post, and maybe you are referring to the radiator fans instead of the interior fan. If so, ignore my post

The light i'm referring to is the orange light in the upper left corner of the dash pod.Again, don't really what it means when it's lit,(1)is it sensening the fans not running and should be (2) fans are running (2)engine hot and are running? Where is the light you're referring to,fan turned on?
Thanks for your input.

On the 308 GTB I used to own, the light just indicated that the fans were on.

It's the same on my '84 GTS Qv. If it goes off when you turn the fan off, then no problem.
