Where is the "valet switch" in my 2000 GTS?
The box for my alarm says it can be bypassed and reset by pressing the valet button. It hasn't worked since the day I got the car and it randomly goes off when I start the car. Its really annoying and embarassing. Can anyone help me out?

If it's a DEI alarm viper, python, sidewinder, hornet etc press button 1 then 2 then 1 again with the door open. The lED will go solid then. If it's a newer DEI alarm with the lock and unlock symbols try lock, unlock, lock with the door open.

If it's another brand pm me and I'll get back to you. I worked as a 12 volt audio/alarm/convenience installer from 96-00 before finishing school and moving into composites and Fiberglass prototyping.

We also have a retail store that does car audio/alarms/remote starts etc so I have access to pretty much any info I need.

Hey Krazy, what kind of alarm would you recommend? I'm in the process of getting one because i just got a new sound system set up. I really want one with the best security and nice looking remote...

that will put it into valet mode meaning the alarm won't arm and your remotes will act as a keyless entry.

DEI makes great alarms and your problem is most likely an installation issue. We sell AST alarms that are also a very affordable alarm and very good quality.
