Look for a small button somewhere underneath typically around the edge bottom edge of your dashboard or where the flashing LED is you need to hold that in while the key is on for like 10 seconds and that will change the mode

How do I access trunk entry into my 2004 Jaguar xj8 when now it has gone into valet lockout?


I believe that this is to protect valuables left in the boot when parking the vehicle. I read here that there is access some where in/ near the glove box but I cannot remember exactly what it was . Surf the net under Jaguar valet problems and you may get the answer.

My anti theft went off after eating a meal at mcdonald. cannot stop it cant start car. took battery off for 3 days same thing happening went to start it it doesnt do anything no click no turn over theft...


Normally, putting the key in the drivers side door lock,
turning to the left, then to the right all the way
will unlock and disarm/reset the "OEM factory"
alarm system.

However, if your system is after market:

The Parking Lights Would Flash, A siren Is Going Off,
An LED Is Flashing As Well, and You May Have A Shock/Impact
sensor set Too High Too. Try The Following Procedure
To Disarm/Disable It.

To start with, you can identify which after market
system you have by using the FCC. ID.# found
on the back of each remote. Try a site
like WWW.REMOTES4SALE.COM
to track down the one you have in your hand.

Now let's put the system into overide mode.

As far as the valet/overide button, it's a hidden
device-switch, a little spring loaded micro button,
red or black possibly and is probably down under
the dash area, near your knee/leg. In some
remote start/alarm combos, the antenna on the window
glass will also have an override/valet button.
Older sytems will have a flip type toggle switch.

When you locate the button or switch,
turn on the ignition key, press and hold
in the button until the alarm chirps 1 time
(for toggle types, key on, flip switch in the
opposite direction, then key off)

This should over ride the system, and only the
keyless entry part, if installed, would still be
operating.

You would get a single chirp to confirm from the siren.
The LED (light emiting diode) light in the dash
should also go on solid. This is valet/overide/reset.
This should correct any issues like starter disable,
or anti-hijack. Your keyless entry, if installed,
will still be operable. The have it inspected for the
falsing issues you are experience at a local shop.

You would repeat the same steps to toggle
back into user mode.

Can you reprogram a 1996 Suzuki Sidekick remote?


For a 94-97 single button remote:

- Flip Valet switch to ON position
- With key in ignition, turn key to ON, then OFF
- Flip the valet switch to OFF, then ON/OFF, ON/OFF (that's twice), and you should hear a confirmation siren chirp.
- Turn the ignition switch On/OFF, ON/OFF (twice), and you should get another confirmation chirp.
- You are now in programming mode. Push button on the remote, and you should hear a chirp to confirm programming completed successfully.
- After 5 seconds, the programming mode will close automatically.

Good Luck and please rate 4thumbs up for the free answer and also please leave a Testimonial Thank You.

My glove box valet lock is on, how do I override


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.

How do i disable alarm for my 1996 thunderbird lx 4.6


Ok, try this.
Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
all the way just before cranking. Then within
5 seconds, press and hold in the valet/overide
button, found under the dash area in most cases,
until the installed LED (the blinking light)
in your dash area comes on solid.
(Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type.
in this case, key on, flip switch in oposite direction,
key off.)

This should be valet. This overides
the starter kill relay in the alarm harness,
and returns the car back to disarmed mode.

The only thing that will work now on your system,
is the keyless entry if installed.

Just Repeat these steps to rearm your system.

Fuse box location


I have a '99 Deville. Had the same problem. In the glove box, there are two toggles for Traction Control and Valet. Toggle the Valet one and try the remote on your key or the buttons in your dash.
For mine, someone had engaged the Valet to "ON" and locked out the remote trunk and fuel door.
