No it will not. The only difference with a valet key is should not be able to open the glove box or the trunk. If you copied it valet key, it'll do the same as a valet key. If you copied the original key, then it will do the same as the original key. I don't know why the dealer told you this because it is not true. If the car starts, then the issue is not with the key.

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.

97 cavalier key won't turn


My daughter was told the same thing when her key wouldn't turn and was getting stuck in her 97 chevy cavalier. The used-car dealer suggested going to a Chevy dealer and getting a master key remade, not a copy of the key. We did for $16 and the new master key did the trick! It's as smooth using the key as in a new car. Try that first before any of the worst-case scenarios...
