What is valet mode?

Valet mode is a setting in Compustar systems that will shut down the alarm system and the remote starter. It will only allow the remotes to retain key-less entry to be used to lock and unlock the doors.  

How to tell if my system is in valet mode:

  • When attempting to remote start you will receive 3 vehicle parking light flashes followed by 10 parking light flashes.
  • If you have a remote with an LCD screen there will be Z’s visible on the screen, making it look as though the vehicle is in sleep mode. 
  • When attempting to lock and unlock your vehicle with your remote, under normal circumstances the parking lights will flash once for lock and twice for unlock. However, if the parking lights DO NOT flash the vehicle is in valet mode (unless the installer did not hook up the parking lights upon installation).

    My CompuStar remote starter on my 2009 Toyota Prius goes into Valley mode every time we shut the car off we cannot see the car decided so we do not know if it's in valet mode when you get up in the morning
