    Hello Folks,

    I've used the search and didn't find any results with "valet problems", "valet glitch" or "valet issues".

    This happened the other day. Has anybody locked themselves out of valet mode? I have used valet mode a few times just for cruising, to see how it responds in valet mode, and everything worked as expected. But the other day I dropped my car off for service and I was stopped at a red light and tried to put it in valet mode and it asked for the pin and then it gave a message of a bunch of check marks and a warning sign on the right side, it did NOT go into valet mode. I should have taken a picture, but I was in a hurry. I think it was like the typical "settings can't be changed while vehicle is in motion" warning, but on a different panel/page, even when the car was not in motion. I tried turning the car off and on (oh boy, here we are future) to reset the uconnect. Again, valet was not initialized but I had that popup on the screen and I couldn't put it into valet mode.

    Stupid me kept saying "try valet again" and it didn't work. Dumb me was hitting the SRT button twice to put it into custom mode, I really don't remember if it put me in custom mode but the popup message was still on the screen so that wasn't good. Less dumb me hit the SRT button once and was able to get back and put it into valet mode. Maybe a beginners mistake, but it had to have been some type of glitch. I was stopped at a light when putting it in valet, but there could have been a point when I started rolling when entering the pin.

    While you are driving the car, you will notice that the color word "Valet" changes between white and gray. You can only enter Valet mode when it is white.

    You have to be careful when you type your code in I accidentally typed one number off playing with it one day if you don't type the same exact code back in you can't take it back off again luckily the guy was showing it to realized what number I put in LOL

    If you forget the code to Valet mode, you can unplug the battery and it will reset the computer.

    Thanks, I do know that, but this was something else. I was not locked IN valet mode, I was locked OUT of it! Imaging trying to drop your car off for service and can't put it in valet mode! It worked out though in the end.

    I had the same problem with mine, but the unplugging of the battery alone did not reset it. I had to disconnect the negative and positive cables and touch them together for capacitive discharge. Do you with your doors open. That reset it for me to put a code in and i didn't have reset my radio stations.
