If your car has the Valet Lock feature on the trunk, and you still
have the "master key" you stick it in the trunk lock and turn (right,
I think) to open the trunk. But if you turn it to the left it will go
90 degrees and click-stop, and allow you to remove the key. That
might be where your lock is set (accidentally) now.
In the "valet lock" position, the 'valet key' will not work in the
trunk lock to open it, and the inside release lever is also locked
out. Now you can safely give the Valet parking attendant only the
Valet Key - not on a ring with your house keys or any other keys. You
keep the Master Key in your pocket.
This is to keep the stuff you have stored in the trunk safely away
from the possibly sticky fingers of the valet.
