    Is there some way to over-ride valet mode?

    What if some twit decides to punch in a random 4 digit pin and activate valet mode without taking note of the code (or you make a mistake/forget your code) would this leave you locked in valet mode FOREVER?

    How would you get your car back to sweet, sweet red key goodness?

    Is it something as simple as pulling a fuse? If so, then what good is valet mode in the first place if anyone can override it (re: dealership wrench monkeys)

    Anyone have any idea?

    Also, can anyone with a 6-speed confirm whether or not this mode blocks first gear? (I assume it's only the autos that do that)

    There is a way from what I understand. I would say, don't put an easy code like 1234, 9999 or something to that effect. The chance of somebody punching in your code would be slim. If you put something like 7481, it would be blind luck to hit that. Know my solution? Don't ever turn your CAT over to a valet. Bring another car if you must use a valet.

    Not sure about the M6 first gear deal but to reset valet PIN you must disconnect positive and ground negative terminals off the battery for 1 min. Cycle your ignition to RUN position without touching the brakes then press the button one more time to turn it off then start your hellcat and you're good to go. Valet mode is off by this time. Happened to me 2 weeks ago and we spent 2.5hrs with UConnect and SRT and my dealership to figure it out.

    Ohhhhhhh... so you need to set a code, then enter that code to turn valet mode ON? I thought you made up a code each time - I'd know that if I had a Hellcat to play in! Hehe...

    Also, a valet would never get NEAR my car, but I'm more worried about the vehicle going in for service and having someone take it around back if ya know what I mean.

    There's no code preset. You have to input a new code to activate valet mode.

    Do you have to enter a code each time you activate valet mode or is it the same after you've set it once (until it's reset somehow?)

    So, TECHNICALLY, a buddy or someone could get in your car, type in some 4 digit code and lock you out of your own Cat? (obviously they would be shot and/or run over at that point for messing with your car, but, hypothetically it could happen?)

    Once you activate it, it stays until you either unlock it or hard reset it via battery.

    Lol you're fast, I had to remove the later part about unlocking the door since Ironside was only referring to the valet PIN lock mode
