is there a button on the Antenna?

or is there a seperate Valet switch under the dash?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No valet switch will heck CPR other buttons
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 month ago.

should be a Valet Button..........
Depending on Installer, most mount the Switch under driver dash, or behind Fuse Panel Cover, or below steering colomn, or on kick panel, etc.
Then some wire tie the switch to the Main Unit under driver dash, or not at all
Best to follow Alarm Antenna Lead to the Main Unit & get the Model Number

You can also try:
Be sure the Vehicle Battery is Fully Charged
Disconnect the Negative Battery Cable
Open the Driver Door & LEAVE Open
Turn Ignition Switch to ON Position & LEAVE ON
