Aftermarket stereo manufacturers constantly update the features available. (autoradio 2 image by Nathalie P from Fotolia.com)

The French auto manufacturer Peugeot produced the 406 saloon can from 1996 to 2004. It came with a pre-installed radio, which included as its features an AM/FM receiver with a CD or cassette player. If you would like to install an aftermarket CD player, which includes more up-to-date features, then you must adapt the wiring to allow the new player to function in the 406. Disconnect the car battery for safety before starting the procedure and adapt the radio housing to allow the aftermarket stereo to fit.
