Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.

Most cars are very quite at that speed.
A seal must be out of place somewhere.You may have to tape the sun roof and door opening completely on the outside for testing.
Also,sit in the passenger seat and have someone drive while you listen at different areas of the door edges and roof areas through a leftover paper towel center tube.
You have some age on the car, just wiping down all rubber soft seal parts with a good rubber conditioner may help too.
.......and don't overlook the door glass seals.

I would not use anything more than say 10psi of pressure. I doubt using air pressure will fix the clog if that is the problem, because the pump uses 10-20 psi in normal use. You may have to disconnect the nozzles and use a pin to clean out the ports or find the clog in the main line.

First check to see if you have enough washer fluid in the reservoir. Then check to see if the rubber tubing is kinked or pinched when you close the hood. It is possible but not likely to be plugged up, except during the winter. The spray nozzles could be plugged up, because the opening is much smaller than the tubing. Even though the pump is operating, does not mean that it is actually pumping any fluid. The pump assembly is electrical and mechanical. The electric motor runs, but the pumping mechanism could be defective. If you use compressed air to clean out the rubber tubing, make sure the rubber hose is not connected up to the pump assembly. It might get damaged from too much pressure.

You NEVER in---- my world ---use any sealant in any vehicle
systems-- as it is there for life

It will stop up a heater core
It will stop up a radiator
It will not or seldom be a fix for a head gasket replacement
Get the idea

Don't know what to tell you

Did it shut down from lack of oil pressure to save the motor?

How your going to get that out of the bearings,cam actuators,
oil passages,oil pump,sensors

I think your in BIG Trouble & need to ask many shops what
success they have had with that issue

I say stay out of the parts store chemical isle, with the exception
of LUBEGARD for transmission & power steering additives

Those are ALL, I Repeat ALL, I use & they actually not only work
but are necessary in those two items only (i once owned a trans shop)
I use NO other brands,no Lucus,no genie in a bottle

Just Mobil 1 Oil & Lube Guard & make the proper diagnoses
to all vehicles & do the necessary & painful repairs

I have a Mercedes Benz and the part that causes that Same problem is the crank shaft position sensor. When its faulty it may not throw an engine light for that part. Benz, BMW, jaguar share a lot of the same German engineering and bosh parts.

It sounds like the ignition control module shorted out due to the moisture. Get yourself a spark tester from the parts store. Have someone crank the engine will you check for spark. Here is one that will only cost about $7. Once you know if you have spark we will be able to help you better.
