I found this on a Jaguar forum " the only way to reset the valet button (because I just did this) is to open the trunk manually with the key. Stick the key in the little hole between the X and the K on the rear panel label. There is a hole for it- it hard to see. This will reset your buttons and open your trunk." it is the procedure for a slightly older Jaguar but may apply. I remember there is a "green" valet key and a valet switch above the radio. I'll look in the owners manuals tomorrow and see if has instructions.

I have the same issue, I just bought my 2001 Jaguar and I pushed the "valet mode" button without knowing anything about it now I have to try what you have placed here and hope it will work.

I had problems for nearly a year of my 99 XK8 going into limp mode and stalling. I replaced the Fuel Filter of all things and she runs pretty good. I have also replaced belts, constantly filling it up with coolent. Cup holder just broke. Seats have went to hell over the year. i love this car but it seems like a daily investment to keep pretty.
