Your black ended driver key should open the glove box. The valet key is not made to open it, thats the safty feature in it. There is no overide for the Valet settings, you have to unlock the glove box with Driver (master or black) key and turn the Valet switch off. Also the Valet switch does not engage the glove box lock so over riding the Valet security wouldnt open it even if you could over ride. If the Valet key would unlock it or was easy to overide then it wouldnt be a very good safety feature. Best of luck, hope you can get it opened.

2000 XK8 I locked the glovebox and now it won't open . any ideas


Welcome to Fixya

The car might be stucked in Valet mode. Use the black key that you have to open the trunk, it overrides the Valet Mode. The key goes in a hole that is between the X and the K on the emblem on the rear of the car.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My 2004 Totota Avalon trunk wont open with the key. Opens fine from inside or with remote. Is there a seperate key ? I never used anything but the remote, or maybe there is a lock of some sort but I...


The key you are using might be a valet key. Check to see if you can lock your glove box. If you can lock and unlock your glove box with the key then there is something wrong with your trunk lock. If the key does not work in the glove box, then you will need to order a master key from a toyota dealer.

Glove box in dash stuck can not open with key


You likely have something stuck in the latch mechanism. Push in on the cover push/turn button then pull out at the same time.

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.

2001 Olds Aurora: Neither the buttons on the door nor the remote open the gas tank and trunk anymore. Where can I locate the "fuse/circuit" box so I can determine if this could be causing the problem?


The "problem" was caused by the "valet" switch (actually a pretty cool option). I read the owner's manual - there is a valet toggle switch located in the glove compartment. As instructed, I turned the valet switch option from "ON" to "OFF".....everything started working properly (including the remote garage door opener - which I forgot to mention also was not working). Simple, easy fix didn't cost one dime! Pays to read the owner's manual and any signs in the vehicle. The information is posted right on the switch panel!
