vehicles equipped with option code (Z49) and a masterkey what is this

.

Expert:  Dan replied 5 years ago.
A master key is one of the regular keys that have the chip inside of it and not one of the Valet keys.

Z49 is a Canda model car. There is a label with all of the cars options on it in the trunk.
