Are you talking about the alarm the car came with from GM? if so there is no "valet button" if its the GM system it will need to be done by a dealer or a shop that has a TECH2 scanner.

What is the valet button located inside of glove compartment used for

It is used for programing the alarm, it is used to disarm the alarm without the remote, [in case remote is damaged] and it is used to put alarm system into valet mode, [service mode] valet mode is only really needed if the alarm has been programed for passive arming, [alarm arms itself].

Your main use for the valet switch, [if programed for active arming instead of passive arming] is to have a way to disarm the alarm if the remote does not work.

How do I reprogram my remote door lock control after I replace the battery in it?

Is this a factory alarm unit or an after-market alarm? If this is an after-market alarm, all you need to do is hit the valet button under the dashboard to reset the alarm after a battery change.

Try starting the car, when the security light comes on, leave the ignition switch on for at least ten minutes then switch it off and repeat. On the third attempt to start , the system should be reprogramed.

I have a viper alarm on my car that wont shut off nor i cant start the car..and i have tried the button under my dash, how Can i shut it off??

was it a professional or shade tree install? the following is off vipers website:
disarming without a remote control
This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the
Remote Control should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to
disarm the system without a remote remote control, you must have
the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is
located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the
number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system.
To disarm the security system,
turn the ignition to the ON position.
Press the Valet button the
preset number of times (one to
five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will
disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long;
turn the ignition off and on and try again.
if that doesn't work try this other

valet mode
You can prevent your security system from automatically arming
and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when
washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the
security system will not arm, even with the Remote Control, but
all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will
continue to work normally.
To enter or exit Valet Mode:
1. Turn the ignition on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press and release the Valet
button within 10 seconds.
The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.

Alarm is mal- functioning need to by pass alarm made by karr i think orinal equipment car starts sporatacly but have to play with remote to get it t o start help

It is simple just trace the wires - you will notice that installer will have teed in the wires – just cut off the T to the alarm - where you spot wires have been cut and attached with the alarm wires, just remove the alarm wires and rejoin the original wires and you won't face the alarm problem again.

A lot of owners coimment about Karr alarms and are so bad! Do yourself a favor and replace it (they comment like a personal opinnion).

I just got an accord and it came with a paper manual for the 2040. I had to reprogram the remotes though. Here is how Kar said to do it, you will have to fool around with it to figure out which buttons go to which channel, and I only had to press the button 3 times not on off to get it into the mode. So when it beeps once it meets its in channel 1, twice, channel 2:
* First, locate your valet switch. The valet switch is either going to be a small black push button, or a small silver toggle switch. The valet switch is either mounted on the plastic panel on the left side of the vehicle, near your left ankle as your sitting normally in the driver’s seat or directly behind the LED light.
·Turn your ignition key to the “on” position, or start the vehicle.
·Within 10 seconds
+ you have a silver toggle switch:
·Flip the switch “on” and “off” three times. (on-off-on-off-on-off) qIf you have a valet push button:
·Push the push button three times.

* The alarm system will chirp one time, letting you know that the alarm is in programming mode.
·Hold down the arm/disarm (center) button on the transmitter, until the alarm chirps again, confirming that the transmitter has been learned.
·Turn your ignition key off.

* The alarm will give one last chirp, letting you know the alarm has exited programming mode.

* The new transmitter is now programmed to the vehicle, and will arm and disarm the alarm system.

If you have problems programming the transmitter, please feel free to call at (949) 707-4210, or toll free at (800) 395-5277.

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
