Try relearning the key to the ignition first,turn the key to on,leave it on for ten minutes,then turn it off,and right back on.Do this three times,and a total of thirty minutes,if this does not work,the alarm will have to most likely be programmed at the dealer or replaced.

Need to turn the valet switch off On 1999 Nissan Maxima

Look for alarm Brain box and look for wires coming out black and red going to valet switch. to turn valet on turn ignition in ON position and press-switch or flip depending on the type of switch. If it a basic alarm just disconnect the main wiring harness to alarm box- unplug and the car should start. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Can't locate Valet switch

Does the vehicle have an aftermarket alarm system? Is the valet switch for this what you are looking for? If so, it depends entirely on who installed it as where they have put it, although it's usually under the dash on the drivers side. Some alarms have different sequences that you have to go through to put the alarm into valet mode, it's not usually just a switch that you flick. Best to pop into an alarm or stereo installer and see if they can spot it for you, or if the car is immobilised, find out what sort of alarm it is and call an installer for the info on the valet procedure.
Hopefully i haven't just wasted my time and yours, but i can't think of any other type of valet switch, and your description was pretty minimal. Cheers, Mark.

You need to first look under the drivers side dash area near the hood release/fuse panel area and see if there is a valet switch. The switch will look like a little toggle or a push switch. After you locate it, turn the ignition switch to the on position(dont start it) and flick the valet to the opposite position it is in now. If done correctly in most cases the red system light will stay a constant instead of off or blinking indicating you are in valet mode. Next try to start the engine. If this doesnt work you need to remove the alarm system and repair the ignition switch wiring or replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch. The aftermarket alarm cuts into the ignition switch wires and bypasses the start circuit through the alarm module. When disarmed the alarm completes the circuit and allows the car to start. Good luck hope this helps and please rate this.

I have a hyundai xg300 and my remote to control my alarm got wet and is ruined. When I open the car door the alarm goes off and disabled me being able to start my car. How can I bypass the alarm to start...

I had a similar problem. Eventually, I discovered that only the valet key would set the alarm off (The XG300 came with both a driver's key and a valet key. The valet key cannot open the trunk) Perhaps this could help prevent you from setting your alarm off in the future.
