Troubleshooting procedure for when you can't find the valet switch/button.

Below are examples of the button or switch:
 

 
Sometimes when an alarm shop installs an aftermarket system with a valet/bypass switch they don't mount the switch or they don't hook it up completely.  
 
What you need to do is look for the keyless entry receiver (brain).  It is usually located under the dash on the driver or passenger side.  It is a plastic box with wires coming out of it.
 
It will have plugs where the wires go in it.  It may have two to four plugs.  The largest plug will definitely have wires plugged in.  Then there will be smaller ones.  One of the smaller ones will have blue plastic surrounding the plug.  That is where the valet switch plugs in.  
 
If there is something plugged in then follow the wire as this leads to where the switch/button is located.  If there is nothing plugged in then take a metal paper clip and touch it to both metal terminals inside the blue plastic plug.  This will make the system think you are pressing the valet switch/button.
