Can vw jetta tdi mechanics key used incorrectly cause the car not to start?


If you mean the valet key, no. I use that key frequently in my 2001 TDI.
Only the ignition switch has a receiver to identify the chip in the key fobs but the valet key has the chip also.

I have a 2000 dodge intrepid. The alarm never worked on it. We bought it used and all of a sudden when we go to unlock the door it turns on. Now the car won't start. I've looked online for answers and...


The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

  1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
  3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
  4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
  5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.

I have a used 2004 Kia Sedona that won't start with a valet key, I misplaced my regular set and thought that this key would work just as my usual key would. Now the garage that I'm having my vehicle...


The dealer can make you a new key. A valet key is limited, but should start the car unless it is missing a chip. It will not open the glove box (if there is a lock) or trunk.

Trunk does not open with button inside car. Does open with key remote. Is there a bad fuse somewhere and if so which one?


Your Valet cancel switch is set.


Open your glovebox and you will see a pushbutton on the the left side, if memory serves. When this button is set, the power button will be disabled, but the key fob button will still work.
This is for when you Valet your car, you push the cancel button in the glovebox, lock the glovebox, then give the Valet your Valet key, which will not open the trunk or the glovebox. Voila, no Valet rummaging through your trunk :)

Often full gloveboxes will be the cause of the button getting pushed accidentally.

Trunk qill not open


Your trunk lock actuator is probably in valet mode. Take the mechanical key out of your smart key(should have a release button on the bottom of the key which will allow you to slide the hidden mechanical key out of the plastic housing) insert it into your trunk lock actuator and turn to change your function of trunk actuator. In the valet mode the trunk does not respond to your central locking or release button commands. Your owner's manual will tell you about these features. I hope I have been helpful

Fuse box location


I have a '99 Deville. Had the same problem. In the glove box, there are two toggles for Traction Control and Valet. Toggle the Valet one and try the remote on your key or the buttons in your dash.
For mine, someone had engaged the Valet to "ON" and locked out the remote trunk and fuel door.
