I thought that car had a remote trunk switch in the glove box? well anyways you can remove the back seat, or call a locksmith, or have a new master key made using the vin.
The trunk is locked and the engine power is reduced so the valet can't drag race your car, or take things you locked in your trunk.
Valet mode disables the electric trunk release and the "home link functions" for security reasons when valet parking. The "valet key" will not open the trunk
What do you mean by "valet mode"? If you mean the trunk release button won't work, there's a valet switch inside the glove compartment that activates and deactivates it. Just turn it off. OR You use the black key in the trunk keyhole which is located in the xk8 emblem. The Keyhole is located between the x and k. That should take it of valet mode.
pry it open with a crowbar
willnot open trunk or locked compartments
Depends on what is wrong. I'd guess, however, that the problem is that you have stuffed your glove compartment too full and inadvertently depressed the "valet switch" button. See Valet Switch in this forum.
Overrride the valet mode in an xj8 2000 jaguar
Make sure you are using the Master (black head) key, not the Valet (green head) key.
Check inside your glove compartment and make sure you have the trunk switch set to open with the button. This is a safety feature for valet parking.
It sounds like you only have a "valet key" My valet key is green. The main key is black. The valet key will not open the trunk or the glovebox. If you do not have a main key you should be able to get one from a dealer using the VIN #
It Locks your trunk and gas tank so that when you give a valet the valet key all they can do is open the door and start the car ... that way you can leave things in the trunk and not worry about a valet stealing them the valet key is the one that is grey or round depends on which Honda you have
The best way to get a Jaguar XF out of valet mode would be to take it to the Jaguar dealer or an authorized Jaguar mechanic. As a rule it is generally frowned upon for one to try to work on their own Jaguar because it can cause more problem to arise.
Won't the valet key open the trunk
check valet button n glove box.it deactivates trunk release. also the contacts inside the remote get dirty,
The Valet switch is located in the center console storage bin. If you have tried that and you still find that the trunk will not open with the fob or you need to use the key every time to open it you may have a problem in the wiring harness. It is very common in the X300 series jaguar, The wiring harness snakes under the RHS trunk hinge and a break may occur here causing the trunk not to open when you press the fob or the internal trunk switch.
What year? Most valet keys that I have seen are shorter than the master key and allow you to start the car but not access the trunk or glove box. I would assume that in a modern car there maybe a chip involved in this process as well.
In the glove compartment.
should be in the centre consol
When your car is in valet mode the trunk cannot be opened with the trunk release button. Your car came with 3 keys, two black ones and a green one. The green one will start the car, and unlock the doors, but it won't open the trunk. That way you can put your Rolex and gold bars in the trunk without having to worry about the valet at the restaurant stealing them.
Check for a valet switch in glove compartment, not sure if it should be "on" or "off" , I believe it should be "off". But switch it to see if that works.
valet keys do not allow access to glove box and trunk
hi there. i have myself an xk8, 4l -97 model. from my experience if the Valet mode is activated is possible that the button wont work , to prevent the valet to open the trunk. to over run the valet mode, use the ignition key to open the trunk. regards cr4zy_jaguar
"Valet keys" get their name because they are designed to start the car they're made for as well as lock the doors on that car: two things you'd need a valet to do for you. As an additional safety feature, valet keys cannot open a locked trunk or glove box. The locks on these compartments are designed to only be opened or engaged by the main car key (which is usually a chipped transponder key, smart key, or similar).
The 1994 Honda Del Sol Si has the trunk release near the driver side door next to the gas cap release lever. It does have a lock so both the gas cap and trunk can be locked when leaving the car with a valet. I hope this answers the questions as it is rather vague.
The Saturn valet key opens the drivers side door. In addition, it will start the car. However, it will not open the glove box or the trunk.
