: Probably for your own protection valet key has a time-out interval. In other words it will let you park the car but won't let you drive it too far if you are happened to be a car thief.
Are you serious? I (temporarily) lost a key on Mt. Washington and was about to use my valet key to get home!!! You mean my car could have quit going down the mountain? How long does the key permit you to drive anyway? Is this information published? I am now considering locking mine in a drawer at home.
