why is it the valet button?
what use is it?
I think it's intended to add security to the car when you give the keys to a valet. It limits access to the rest of the car (trunk and glove box). Basically, the valet can only lock/unlock the doors and start the car.

Ahh, so some of my cars will have this?

Interesting, we eat in a few restraunts where they have valet parking. It could be useful.

You know they go in the glovebox too, they always do

I don't get the valet button at all....

-you push the button in the glove box, then lock the glove box with your key
-next you hand the key to your valet guy
-now the valet guy can use the key to open the glove box and disable the valet mode OR go directly to the trunk and use the key to open the trunk

Whats the point??

I totally dont understand how this is supposed to work??

Those Cadillacs don't have 3 different keys and I don't think they have anything that disables the power trunk or any of that either. That's probably something only newer cars have. In my Broughams owners manual I think it says to lock the glovebox and leave the doors unlocked and just give them the square key. What's the point of that? :bonkers: Chrysler and Ford were a lot smarter. The round key only works for the glovebox and the trunk. If you don't want someone to get into those things you just don't give them that key.

They don't have it. The only cars I've seen with it that works as described are cars with the trunk release and fuel door release buttons located by the driver. I guess since Cadillac stuck them in a locking glovebox, they didn't add one.
