Most late-model cars use one key for the entire vehicle. Many also come with a special key which only operates the doors and ignition; the key won’t work the trunk or the storage compartment (glove box or console). This is a valet key. It allows you to have someone park your car without letting them snoop in the storage areas. In many cases, the handle is gray instead of black. In other cases, the handle or bow is a different shape. For specific information on the valet key for your vehicle, refer to your owner’s manual. A well-equipped locksmith can make both valet keys and master keys for most vehicles.
