Valet hand-off

When you have to leave a key with a valet, give them the Intelligent Key itself and keep the mechanical key with you to protect your belongings.

To prevent the glove box and the trunk from being opened during valet hand-off, follow the procedures below:

1. Push the trunk cancel switch to the OFF position.

2. Remove the mechanical key from the Intelligent Key.

3. Lock the glove box and the rear seats with the mechanical key.

4. Hand the Intelligent Key to the valet and keep the mechanical key with you.

See “Trunk lid” in this section, “Storage” in the “Instruments and controls” section and “Seats” in the “Safety—seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system” section.
