I have lost the original key and only have the ignition key (probably the valet key) I suspect that the vacuum hose on the trunk latch has a leak and will not open....it makes a high pitched sound when I press the release knob....how can I open it ......can I do this manually?

does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.
was it a professional or shade tree install? the following is off vipers website: disarming without a remote control This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the Remote Control should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to disarm the system without a remote remote control, you must have the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system. To disarm the security system, turn the ignition to the ON position. Press the Valet button the preset number of times (one to five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long; turn the ignition off and on and try again. if that doesn't work try this other
valet mode You can prevent your security system from automatically arming and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the security system will not arm, even with the Remote Control, but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will continue to work normally. To enter or exit Valet Mode: 1. Turn the ignition on. 2. Turn the ignition off. 3. Press and release the Valet button within 10 seconds. The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode, and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
Your vehicle comes with two kinds of keys: a master key and a valet key.
The master key fits all the locks on your car:
Trunk release handle
Rear seat trunk access
The valet key works only in the ignition and the door locks. You can keep the trunk, trunk release handle and rear seat trunk access locked when you leave your car and valet key at a parking facility.
You should have received a key number plate with your set of keys. You will need this key number if you ever have to get a lost key replaced. Keep the plate stored in a safe place. When replacing keys, use only Honda-approved key blanks.
There are many hardware stores that have Honda key blanks and can make a key if you have a working one.If not, a Honda dealership can get you a key (expensive) for your vehicle if what is left of your key has the small serial number still on it.Additionally, they might be able to get one based on the VIN number of your car.
the dealer gave you a ignition key, instead of valet key.
valet key should open the driver door and ignition. nothing else. if the key can't ope the door. try the trunk. if it open the trunk, the it is a wrong key.
