Yes the control pad and the engine management are connected via a unit called the BSI this very expensive to replace around the $1500 AU price so you don't want to replace it if you dont have to the 406 had problems with immobilisers ecu which is able to be unpluged, most of the time this will solve the problem.
if need be tow the car to the dealer and ask them to unplug the imobiliser

I have a peugeot partner van 1997, and I want to bye pass the immobiliser, as the van will not start. The red and green light are staying on. do you have any suggestions please? It is with a mecahnical...

Leave it for half an hour with the ignition on and door closed, it should re set (this happens when the wrong code is used for more than 3 times) check for a sticking button, sometimes they go sticky with a lot of use, if you do get the green light just umplug the keyboard when running and it disables the system. If you cannot get the green light try leaving the battery off overnight with the lights switched on then connect the battery, if still no with the ignition on and someone in the car spark the earth lead to the battery untill the green light comes on.

I ran my peugeot 406 out of diesel and i think there is an air lock as it starts but doesnt keep running? i had to click on 2006 peugeot 405 as it wouldnt let me select a product. my car is infact a 1996...

406 1996 Diesel would either be 1.9D, 1.9TD or 2.1TD

Each of these use a vacuum type distribution pump, which means once the fuel has managed to get to the pump via means of initial priming it looks after itself by constantly sucking fuel. If the engine stops after a a short time it could be a blockage caused by running very low on fuel. First thing to check is the primer system. You may have the squeazy balloon type or the purflux set up with a hand primer button. The issue is common to be at this point but hard to diagnose.

What I have done in the past is disconnect the pipe going to the main pump and given a seperate feed from a pipe submerged in a can of diesel, if it runs fine then it rules out mechanical and pump issues leaving it only to be a supply issue.

I have a peugeot 406 hdi executive with no handbook.The car wont start,I think i have immobiliser problem and i need to enter code into keypad.Where is the keypad located?

this car has no key pad as to new, after 1999 all pads are gone and its done through your key, is it cranking over ok, i suspect a faulty lift pump, you have to listen for a wine when you turn the key on, its the lift pump under rear seat.
