Locking the glove box will activate valet mode so that only the key can unlock the trunk.

turn the trunk key to the right and pull the key out. the trunk can now only be opened with the key, or with the trunk pop button on the key.

I think locking the glove box only valet locks the trunk in convertibles. Just tried it on my coupe, and it doesn't work, nor are there any "wires" to the glove box lock to let the car know that the glove box is locked.

The key thing works however, turn the trunk lock so the slot is horizontal, and this will valet lock the trunk.

I knew i wasnt retarded, ive done it before, but didnt really take note if the trunk would open or not.

So in my vert I can't turn the key to the right and take it out. It just simply pops the trunk. So...this must mean in a vert I just need to lock the glove box? But again, when I do the trunk button under the dash still seems to work?

Try to the left .. the key slot has to be horizontal. I cant remember which way it is.
