    "Valet" mode

    I was just wondering what exactly, if anything happens to our cars when running with "valet" mode?, when the security light is flashing.

    That's UTEC valet mode, Josh.

    Valet mode on the factory alarm system allows you to turn off the alarm while maintaining the keyless entry function. When the light is flashing, the alarm will not turn on if you lock the doors with the remote.

    I think it has something to do with the fact that valets will use the key to unlock the door. This, of course, sets the alarm off if it is active.

    My mistake....It was posted in Engine Performance so I figured he was talking about Engine Performance related issues.

    I acutally remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade the injectors past a certain size that it won't work properly.
