    Dear Peugeot owners

    Does any one know how to make an Audio Line-in in the radio, mounted in an
    406 from 1999 ?

    I hope to connect my mp3 player, this way

    I can't find my owners manual at present but some radios have a audio in
    socket. Does your radio have a CD or a cassette slot? if it's a cassette
    then you can get these things that look like an audio cassette with a
    trailing lead that plugs into your mp3 player and the casette drops into
    the radio like a normal cassette. They work remarkably well too. The
    latest thing I've seen advertised for about £20 in Halfords is a little
    transmitter. Yoiu plugh it into the headphone socket and it transmits to
    your car radio.

    The quality of the radio tranmitter would be even worse than the
    casstte type adapter..
    I think the casstte type adapter will work better. Maybe the one you
    used wasn't working properly. I would try purchasing a new one.
    Honestly, the radio transmitters are crap!

  5. Not according to a friend of mine. However I haven't heard one so I
    reserve judgement. I'd visit a Halfrauds store and ask for a demo
    before I bought one.

  6. Not if you buy a griffin ( ipod style...)

    the metal coated windos of a 406 will prevent it from working as it

    but there is a solution for that, you can put a transmitter in line
    with the antenna cable ( do a google on that)

    the other thing to look for if you happen to have an ipod is an
    Icelink from dension, the head unit of a pug is clarion afiak

    Then, there is a line input on the CD changer input though it might
    be a bit picky if you want to connect a mp3 player on that.
    I solved it by leaving the cd changer in place, parralel the MP3
    players output on the cd changer and putting the cdplayer on pause..
    all functions of the head unit keep working as does the cd player.
    but that was on a blaupunkt
    the inputs are easy enough to find, and usually red and
    grey/white/black and a common ground between them

    if differently coded you can find them by using a 1.5 volt batery
    solder some leads on it, turn your unit on( max inout on line level is
    as much as 7.8 volt) find the common groud ( NOT THE CAR CHASSIS)
    and poke around till you hear the left and right speakers plop a bit
    of course you dont have your head unit at max volume when doing such

    good luck

    Thinking of doing something similar for the clarion CD changer - if I do
    I'll post a howto.
