There is no manual release switch for these, so this isn't going to be a simple fix. One way is to remove the interior switch and jumper across the pins inside the connector to get the electronic release to engage, and this will only work if the release solenoid is functional. Another would be to have a locksmith maintenance or rekey the lock. Most likely you will have to replace the the switch, release solenoid, or the lock.

I have seen this before, each time i have seen it i have to reprogram the valet key. This needs to be dont at the dealership, make sure you bring the master key otherwise they cant program the valet key.

If you get just a click you should first check battery charge and all battery connections. The click is probably the solenoid kicking in but without enough battery to turn over the engine.

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.
