The button is so the trunk can not be opened by the disignated valet

Is there anyway of telling by the vin number of the veichle if there was a vallet key made before or after purchase.

ALL VW group product come with two remotes and one valet key when new.(the valet key does not operate the glovebox/trunk).there is no way of knowing how many keys were cut after delivery.and sometimes the car will not recognise a key because its been dropped/left on top a television etc.they all have a transponder inbuilt,which is coded to the car.and should be recoded at the same time,as the computer only gives a dealer 30 mins to code them.

My trunk lid will not open on my 2005 nissan sentra. The remote not opening (do hear it click) and the inside button and key not working to open the trunk either

Just beneath the latch ,you can see a clip,turn it up and close the trunk.Try opening it with the button near dash or remote.It should work.They designed it to avoid theft during vallet parking.The main key(steel one) is used only for ignition.There is another key(with a black rubber head) is for ignition and trunk.So if you want to avoid missing any items from trunk using vallet parking,use the main key,put the clip down and hand that to the person who is assisting you during vallet parking.

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.

Starter vallet reset

I think I know what you are talking about. I am unsure what alarm you are using but on mine I have a two button remote and if I push button one briefly than button two briefly then one again it will either enter or exit the silent mode.

Good luck !!!!

If you have an aftermarket alarm the valet switch is a small push button, or toggle switch. They are usually located under the drivers side of the dash Good Luck

How do I get in?

There should be a button to the left of the glove box that you can press and will release the glovebox. If this does not work your glovebox may be stuck as mine has done from time to time. I usually press on the button and place my hand on the back of the glovebox and pull lightly. This should get it open.
