Central locking
From the driver's door, the keys
allow you to lock, deadlock
(keeping the key turned in the
locked position for a few seconds) or unlock the doors and the
boot, as well as fold back the
exterior mirrors.
If one of the front doors or the
boot is open, it is impossible to

normal locking.
This is confirmed by fixed lighting
of the direction indicators for
approximately two seconds.
ELECTRONIC ENGINE
IMMOBILISER
This locks the engine control system a few moments after the ignition has been switched off and
therefore prevents starting of the
vehicle by anyone who does not
have the key.
Operation
Each key has an electronic chip
which has a special code.
When the ignition is switched on,
the key code is recognised and
starting is possible.
If the key does not have a code or
has a different code from that
stored in the system memory, the
vehicle will not start.

PEUGEOT SERVICING
Your vehicle benefits from extended service intervals.
• For petrol engines: every 20,000 miles (30 000 km) or every two years.
• For direct injection diesel engines: every 12,000 miles (20 000 km) or every two years.
The extension of the service intervals means that the engine oil level must be checked regularly: topping up of the
oil between oil changes is normal.
It is for this reason that the PEUGEOT network invites you to an intermediate visit between each regular service.
The date of this service is not shown by the service indicator. It is to be carried out at least every 10,000 miles
(15 000 km) for petrol engines and every 6,000 miles (10 000 km) for direct injection diesel engines. A Peugeot dealer
will carry out a quick check, and will top up the levels if necessary (oil, coolant, screenwash up to 2 litres).
If the oil level is too low there is a risk of serious damage to the engine: check the engine oil level at least every
2,000 miles (3 000 km) or 3,000 miles (5 000 km), depending on the conditions of use.
The extended service intervals have been made possible by technical modifications to the vehicles and lubricants:
THUS IT IS ESSENTIAL TO ONLY USE ENGINE LUBRICANTS WHICH ARE APPROVED AND RECOMMENDED BY THE
MANUFACTURER.

SPECIAL FEATURES
Some of your vehicle's vital components have specific servicing schedules.
The air bags and the pretensioning seat belts must be replaced every 10 years.
The brake fluid must be replaced every 36/40,000 miles (60 000 km) or every 2 years.
The passenger compartment filter must be checked at each visit to the PEUGEOT dealer (intermediate visists and regular services).
Replacement of the timing belt: consult your PEUGEOT dealer.
Arduous condition of use
If the vehicle is used in certain particularly arduous conditions:
• Continuous door-to-door use.
• Town use (e.g. taxi).
• Repeated short journeys, with the engine cold in low temperatures.
of for long stays in the following conditions:
• Hot countries with temperatures often above 30°C.
• Cold countries with temperatures often below minus 15°C.
• Countries with a dusty atmosphere.
• Countries whose lubricants or fuels do not conform to our recommendations.
It is necessary to follow an "Arduous conditions" servicing schedule, which includes special operations and shorter
service intervals:
• Every 12,000 miles (20 000 km) or every year for petrol engine vehicles.
• Every 9,000 miles (15 000 km) or every year for Direct Injection Diesel engine vehicles.

(1) Minimum quality standard: Petrol engines ACEA A3 and API SH/SJ; Diesel engines ACEA B3 and API CF/CD ACEA = Association des Constructeurs Européens Automobiles (Association of European Automobile Manufacturers).
API = American Petroleum Institute - If oil is used which does not conform to the ACEA A3-B3 standards,
this requires the "Arduous Conditions" servicing schedule to be followed,
which involves shorter intervals between services.
Use only 5W40 synthetic oil for the HDI Turbo Diesel engines with particulate emissions filter. Fuel economy oil cannot be
used for the 2.2 litre 16V petrol engine.

Recommendations for
approved lubricants
The oils which appear in the table
opposite are suitable for most purposes.
The diagram opposite states the
optimum range of viscosity depending on the temperatures at which the
oils are to be used.
It is also possible to use synthetic
oils of "superior quality".
In the absence of semi-synthetic or
synthetic oils, oils of API SH/SJ quality (for petrol engines), or CD/CF
quality (for diesel engines) may be
used by following the "Arduous Conditions" servicing schedule, which
specifies shorter service intervals.
Do not hesitate to ask for advice
from a PEUGEOT dealer to maintain
driving pleasure and to minimise the
maintenance cost of your vehicle.
For countries outside Europe, please
contact a local PEUGEOT dealer.

CHECKING THE LEVELS
Brakes and clutch level:
Used products
Oil level
- The level should always be between the DANGER and MAX
marks on the reservoir.
- If the level drops substantially,
contact a PEUGEOT dealer immediately.
Do not dispose of used oil, brake
fluid or coolant down drains or on the
ground.
Check the level regularly and top up
between changes.
Maximum
consumption is 0.5 litres per 600
miles (1 000 km).
The oil level should be checked with
the vehicle level and the engine cold
using the oil gauge or the dipstick.
Dipstick
There are two marks on
the dipstick:
A = maximum
Never fill past this mark.
B = minimum
To maintain the reliability
of the engines and of the
emission control systems, the use of additives
in the engine oil is prohibited.
Oil change
According to the indications of the
"PEUGEOT SERVICES".
Note: avoid any prolonged contact of
used oil with the skin.
Viscosity selection
In all cases, the oil selected must
meet the manufacturer's requirements.
Fluid change
- must be carried out according to
the manufacturer's servicing schedule.
- use fluids recommended by the
manufacturer, which fulfil DOT 4
standards.
Note: the brake fluid is noxious and
very corrosive. Avoid any contact
with the skin.
Power steering fluid level
Open the reservoir with the engine
cold. The level should always be
above the MINI mark, close to the
MAXI mark.
Windscreen and headlamp*
wash fluid level
For best quality cleaning and for your
safety, we advise that you use
products
recommended
by
PEUGEOT.
Coolant level
Use the fluid recommended by the
manufacturer.
When the engine is warm, the temperature of the coolant is controlled
by the engine fan. Because this fan
can operate with the ignition off and
because the cooling system is pressurised, wait for at least one hour
after the engine has stopped before
carrying out any work.
To avoid any risk of burns, slacken

At the start of winter, have your battery checked by a PEUGEOT dealer.
Air filter
Regular replacement of the filter element is essential. If you drive in
very dusty conditions, change it
twice as often.
Brake pads
Brake pad wear depends on the
style of driving, in particular for
vehicles that are used in town, for
short journeys.
It may be necessary to check the
thickness of the pads even between
services.
Handbrake
Where the handbrake travel is too
great or there is a reduction in the
performance of the system, the
handbrake should be adjusted, even
between services.
Have the system checked by a
PEUGEOT dealer.

Special features of alloy
wheels
Bolt covers
Alloy wheel bolts are covered by
chrome trims.
Use tool 6 to remove the trims before slackening the bolts.
Fitting the spare wheel
Anti-theft bolts*
If your vehicle is fitted with a steel
spare wheel, when fitting it, it is
normal when tightening the bolts to
notice that the washers do not come
into contact with the rim. The spare
wheel is secured by the cone shape
of each bolt.
If your wheels are fitted with an antitheft bolt (one per wheel), the chrome trim and then the plastic cover
must be removed using tool 6, before unscrewing the bolt using one of
the two anti-theft sockets (which
were given to you on delivery of your
vehicle along with the duplicate keys
and the confidential card) and the
wheel brace 1.
Fitting snow tyres
If you fit snow tyres mounted on steel
wheels onto your vehicle, it is
essential to use special bolts available from your PEUGEOT dealer.
Note: make a careful note of the
code number engraved on the head
of the anti-theft socket. This will
enable you to obtain duplicate antitheft sockets from a Peugeot dealer.

BATTERY
Economy mode
To charge the battery using a battery charger:
With the engine switched off and the
ignition key in the "running" or
"accessories" position for about half
an hour, certain electrical equipment
(displays, instrument panel, warning
lights, courtesy lights, electric windows, wipers etc.) will switch off
automatically to avoid draining the
battery.
-
Disconnect the battery,
Follow the instructions for use given by the battery charger manufacturer,
Reconnect starting with the negative (-) terminal,
Check that the terminals and connectors are clean. If they are covered with sulphate (white or greenish deposit), disconnect them and clean them.
To start the vehicle from another battery:
- Connect the red cable to the positive (+) terminals of the two batteries,
- Connect one end of the green or black cable to the negative (-) terminal of the
slave battery,
- Connect the other end of the green or black cable to an earth point on the broken down vehicle, as far as possible from the battery,
Operate the starter, let the engine run.
Wait for the engine to return to idle, then disconnect the cables.
It is advisable to disconnect the battery if the vehicle is not to be used
for a period of more than one month.
- Never disconnect a terminal when the engine is running.
- Never charge a battery without first disconnecting the terminals.
- Close the sunroof before disconnecting the battery. If it does not operate normally following re-connection of the battery, you must re-initialise it
by turning the control to the maximum tilt position and pressing it for a few
seconds.
- After every reconnection of the battery, switch on the ignition and wait 1
minute before starting to allow the electronic systems to be initialised. If slight
difficulties are experienced after this, please contact a PEUGEOT dealer.

Special features of the
automatic gearbox
When towing with four wheels on the
ground, the following rules must be
obeyed:
- gear lever in position N,
- tow the vehicle at less than
30 m.p.h. (50 km/h) over a maximum distance of 30 miles (50 km).
- do not add oil to the gearbox.
TOWING YOUR VEHICLE
Without lifting (4 wheels on the road)
You should always use a tow bar.
The towing eye is inside the spare wheel.
From the front:
Unclip the upper section of the cover and tilt it.
Screw in the towing eye until it locks.
From the rear:
Unclip the cover by passing your hand behind the bumper and pushing.
Screw in the towing eye until it locks.
Lifting (2 wheels on the road only)
It is preferable to raise the vehicle by the wheels.
Never use the radiator crossmember.

TOWING A TRAILER,
CARAVAN, BOAT etc.
Only use original PEUGEOT tow
bars that have been tested and
approved from the design stage of
your vehicle. The tow bar must be
fitted by a PEUGEOT dealer.
Your vehicle is primarily designed for
transporting people and luggage but
it may also be used for towing a trailer.
Driving with a trailer subjects the
towing vehicle to more significant
stress and its driver must be particularly careful.
Air density decreases with altitude,
thus reducing engine performance.
Above 1000 metres, the maximum
towing load must be reduced by 10%
and so on for every 1000 metres of
altitude.
Driving advice
Tyres:
Distribution of loads:
Check the tyre pressures of the towing vehicle and of the trailer, observing the recommended pressures.
Distribute the load in the trailer so
that the heaviest items are as close
as possible to the axle and the nose
weight approaches the maximum
permitted without exceeding it.
Towing increases the braking distance.
Cooling:
Towing a trailer on a slope increases
the temperature of the coolant.
Lights:
As the fan is electrically controlled,
its cooling capacity is not dependent
on the engine speed.
Check the electrical signalling on the
trailer.
On the contrary, use a high gear to
lower the engine speed, and reduce
your speed.
Side wind:
The maximum towing load on a long
slope depends on the gradient and
the outside temperature.
In all cases, pay attention to the
coolant temperature.
If the warning light comes on, stop
the vehicle and switch off the engine
as soon as possible.
24-03-2003
Braking:
Take into acount the increased sensitivity to side wind.

RADIO
Notes on radio reception
Your radio is subject to phenomena which do not affect domestic radio sets. Both MW/LW and FM reception are subject to
various forms of interference. This is no reflection on the quality of the equipment, but is due to the nature of the signals and
the way in which they are transmitted.
On MW/LW, interference may be noticed when passing under high voltage power lines or bridges, or in tunnels.
On FM, interference may be the result of increasing distance from the transmitter, deflection of the signals by obstacles
(mountains, hills, buildings etc), or of being in an area which is not covered by a transmitter.

RADIO
Notes on radio reception
Your radio is subject to phenomena which do not affect domestic radio sets. Both MW/LW and FM reception are subject to
various forms of interference. This is no reflection on the quality of the equipment, but is due to the nature of the signals and
the way in which they are transmitted.
On MW/LW, interference may be noticed when passing under high voltage power lines or bridges, or in tunnels.
On FM, interference may be the result of increasing distance from the transmitter, deflection of the signals by obstacles
(mountains, hills, buildings etc), or of being in an area which is not covered by a transmitter.

Presentation
Your 406 Coupé is fitted with a JBL Audio Hi-Fi system, designed specifically for the vehicle's passenger compartment.
At the heart of the system, a 240 Watt multifunction amplifier (1), located in the boot, independently controls 10 high
acoustic definition speakers.
These speakers make it possible to obtain optimum reproduction and distribution of the sound in the vehicle, in the
front and in the rear.
The speakers are located:
- in the fascia: two Micro Tweeters (3) fitted in two Medium Range Speakers (4) for clear and head-on reproduction of the
sound, favouring listening in the front.
- in the front doors: two Woofers (5) for reproduction of the bass (low frequencies) in the front.
- in the passenger pillars: two Tweeters (2) for reproduction of the treble (high frequencies) in the rear.
- on the rear shelf: two Subwoofers (6) for reproduction of the extreme bass sounds (low and very low frequencies) throughout the passenger compartment; you will appreciate the impact and depth, noticing that the sound fills the vehicle
perfectly.
Adjustment in CD mode
The basic functions remain those of the audio equipment.
No additional adjustment is required. However, to benefit fully from your
JBL audio system, you are advised to adjust the AUDIO functions (BASS,

Make a careful note of the number on each key. The key number is coded on the label attached to the key.
If the keys are lost, your PEUGEOT dealer can rapidly supply you with new keys.
The high frequency remote control is a sensitive system; do not operate it while it is in your pocket as there is a
possibility that it may unlock your vehicle, without you being aware of it.
The remote control does not operate when the key is in the ignition, even when the ignition is switched off, except for
reprogramming.
However, do not operate the deadlocking function if there is anyone inside the vehicle.
Driving with the doors locked may make access to the passenger compartment by the emergency services more difficult
in an emergency.
As a safety precaution (with children on board), remove the ignition key when you leave the vehicle, even for a short time.
Do not repeatedly press the button of your remote control out of range of your vehicle.
You run the risk of stopping it from working and the remote control would have to be reprogrammed.
When purchasing a second-hand vehicle:
- ensure that you are given the confidential card;
- have the key codes memorised by a PEUGEOT dealer, to ensure that the keys in your possession are the only ones
which can start the vehicle.
Do not make any modifications to the electronic engine immobiliser system.

GENERAL POINTS RELATING TO CHILD SEATS
Although one of PEUGEOT's main criteria when designing your vehicle, the safety of your children also depends on you.
For maximum safety, please follow these precautions:
- Since 1992, all children under the age of 10 must travel in approved child
seats* suited to their weight, on seats fitted with a seat belt.
In order to recognise a child seat which conforms to current legislation, check
that it bears an orange lable indicating the weight range for its use and
its approval number.
- A child weighing less than 20 lbs. (9 kg) must travel in the rearwards
facing position both in the front and in the rear.
- The safest seats in your vehicle for the transportation of children are the
rear seats.
- If a child travelling on a booster seat, check that the lap section of the seat belt
passes over the child's tighs correctly. The chest section of the seat belt must
be positioned on the child's shoulder without touching the neck. PEUGEOT
recommends that you use a booster seat with a back, fitted with a seat belt
guide.
- Remember to fasten the seat belt or the child seat harness keeping the slack
in relation to the child's body to a minimum, even for short journeys.
* According to current legislation in the country.
**Consult relevant administration in your country for information regarding the
rules for transporting children on the front passenger seat.
24-03-2003
Rules for transporting children in
the front passenger seat**
Children under the age of 10 must
not travel in the forwards facing
position, unless the rear seats are
already occupied by other children
or the rear seats cannot be used
(absent or folded). In this case,
adjust the front passenger seat to
the most rearward position and arm
the passenger air bag.
The rearwards facing position is permitted from birth to 40 lbs (18 kg). In
this position, it is essential to disarm
the passenger air bag.

Pre-tensioning and force-limiting
front seat belts
Safety in the event of a frontal impact
has been improved by the introduction of pre-tensioning and force-limiting front seat belts. Depending on
the seriousness of the impact, the
pre-tensioning system instantly tightens the seat belt firmly against the
body of the occupant.
The pre-tensioning seat belts are
active when the ignition is on.
The force-limiting device reduces the
pressure of the seat belt against the
occupant's body in the event of an
accident.
Rear seat belts
The rear seats are fitted with two
three-point inertia reel belts.

In the event of a breakdown and to
prevent the risk of scalding, turn the
cap to the first notch to allow the
pressure to drop.
Central (STOP) warning light
Linked to the "engine oil pressure", ''the low brake fluid level'', ''the
coolant temperature gauge'' and ''electronic brake force distribution
system fault'' warning lights. It comes on each time the ignition is
switched on.

In emergency braking, press
very firmly without releasing
the pressure.
EMERGENCY BRAKING
ASSISTANCE SYSTEM
In an emergency, this system
enables the optimum braking pressure to be reached more quickly,
thus reducing the stopping distance.
It is triggered by the speed at which
the brake pedal is activated. The
effect of this is a reduction in the
resistance of the pedal and an
increase in braking efficiency.

DRIVING YOUR 406 COUPE
TRACTION CONTROL (ASR)
AND DYNAMIC STABILITY
CONTROL (ESP)
These systems are linked and complement the ABS.
The ASR system optimises drive to
prevent the wheels skidding, by acting on the brakes of the drive wheels
and on the engine. It also allows the
directional stability of the vehicle to
be improved on acceleration.
If
there is a variation between the trajectory followed by the vehicle and
that required by the driver, the ESP
system automatically acts on the
engine and the brake of one or more
wheels, in order to put the vehicle
back on course.
Disarming the ESP / ASR systems
In certain conditions (vehicle stuck in
mud or snow, or on loose ground...),
it could prove useful to disarm the
ASR system to make the wheels
spin and regain grip.
☞ Press the switch "ESP OFF",
situated to the left of the steering
wheel.
The switch lights up and the indicator
lights come on, accompanied by the
message ''ASR/ESP de-activated''
on the multifunction display: the ESP
and ASR systems no longer affect
the operation of the engine or the
brakes.
The ESP system offers
increased safety during
normal driving, but should
not incite the driver to take
risks or to drive at high speed.
The operation of the system is
assured to the extent to which the
recommendations of the manufacturer regarding the wheels (tyres
and wheel rims), the braking components, the electronic components and the assembly and
repair procedures within the
PEUGEOT network are respected.
After an accident or impact, have
the system checked by a

AIR BAGS
Passenger air bag precautions
The air bags have been designed to
maximise the safety of the occupants
in the event of serious collisions.
They work in conjunction with the
force-limiting seat belts.
For a vehicle fitted with a passenger
air bag disarming switch:
- disarm the air
bag if you install
a rear-facing
child seat on the
front passenger
seat,
- arm the air bag
for an adult passenger.
The electronic detectors register and
analyse any abrupt deceleration of
the vehicle: if the triggering threshold
is reached, the air bags inflate
instantly and protect the occupants
of the vehicle.
Immediately after the impact, the air
bags deflate rapidly so that they do
not hinder the visibility of the occupants nor their exit if necessary from
the vehicle.
The air bags are not deployed in the
case of collisions which are not serious, for which the seat belt is sufficient to ensure maximum protection.
The seriousness of a collision
depends on the nature of the obstacle and the speed of the vehicle at
the moment of the collision.
Air bags only operate when the
ignition is switched on.
Note: the gas escaping from the air
bags can be a minor irritant.
24-03-2003
FRONT AIR BAGS
These are folded in the centre of the
steering wheel for the driver and in
the fascia for the front passenger.
They are deployed simultaneously,
except in cases where the passenger air bag is disarmed.
Front air bag fault
If this warning light comes
on, accompanied by an
audible signal and the message "Air bag fault" on the
multi–function display, contact a
PEUGEOT dealer to have the system checked.
For a vehicle not fitted with a passenger air bag disarming switch:
- do not install a rear-facing child seat on the
front passenger seat.
Never place your feet or any object
on the fascia.

DRIVING YOUR 406 COUPE
Operating check
This is confirmed by an indicator light, accompanied by
an audible signal and a
message on the multifunction display.
Disarming the passenger
air bag*
To ensure the safety of your child,
it is essential to disarm the passenger air bag when you install a
rear-facing child seat on the front
passenger seat.
☞ With the ignition switched off,
insert the key into the passenger
air bag disarming switch 1, turn it
to the "OFF" position, then
remove the key keeping the slot in
this position.
The air bag warning light on the
instrument panel is lit throughout the
disarming process.
In the "OFF" position, the passenger
air bag will not be triggered in the
event of an impact.
As soon as the child seat is
removed, turn the air bag slot to the
"ON" position to re-activate the air
bag and thus ensure the safety of
your passenger in the event of an
impact.
* According to destination.
24-03-2003
With the ignition on (2nd notch), illumination of this warning light accompanied by an audible signal and the
message "Passenger air bag disarmed" on the multifunction display,
indicates that the passenger air bag
is disarmed (switch in the "OFF"
position).
SIDE AIR BAGS
The side air bags are incorporated
into the backs of the front seats, on
the door side.
They are deployed independently of
each other, on whichever side the
collision occurs.
Operating check
This is confirmed by an indicator
light, accompanied by an audible
signal and a message on the
multifunction display.
If this indicator light comes
on, accompanied by an audible signal and the message
"Air bag fault" on the
multifunction display, contact
a PEUGEOT dealer to have the
system checked.
131
DRIVING YOUR 406 COUPE
For the front and side* air bags to be fully effective, observe the following safety rules:
• Wear a correctly adjusted seat belt.
• Sit in a normal upright position.
• Do not leave anything between the occupants of the front seats and the air bags (a child, pet, object...).
This could hamper the operation of the air bags or injure the occupants.
• All work on the air bag system is strictly forbidden unless it is carried out by qualified personnel of the PEUGEOT
network.
• After an accident or if the vehicle has been stolen or broken into, have the air bag systems checked.
• The air bag systems have been designed to be fully operational for 10 years after the date of registration of the vehicle.
For greater safety, have them checked by a PEUGEOT dealer within 10 years of purchase of the vehicle.
Front air bags
• Do not drive holding the steering wheel by its spokes or resting your hands on the centre part of the wheel.
• Passengers must not place their feet on the fascia.
• Smoke as little as possible; deployment of the air bags can cause burns or the risk of injury from a cigarette or pipe.
• Never remove or pierce the steering wheel or hit it violently.
Side air bags*
• Only put approved covers on the front seats. Contact your PEUGEOT dealer.
• Do not fix or glue anything to the front seat backs. This could cause injury to the chest or arms when the side air bag
inflates.
• Do not sit with the upper part of the body any nearer to the door than necessary.
* According to destination.
