In the "Warning! Safety First" section of the installation guide, it says the following:
Except when performing the Safety Check outlined in this installation guide,
(1) Never remotely start the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle with the
keys in the ignition.
Aren't we performing #2 when we try to activate valet takeover? LOL...these instructions are rife with errors and contradictions. They may manufacture a decent system, but they really don't like making things easier for the DIYer.

Chev, thank you. The valet take-over works. The only problem is that I can't lock the doors when it's in valet take-over. I thought I would be able to lock them by pressing the lock button on the door. When I press it, the doors lock, but then immediately unlock themselves. Weird.
I guess this is true for the remote start in general. Once unlocked, it cannot be re-locked (at least not electronically).

That is why it is not recommended to use a one button remote start on a Toyota, you can't get PitStop Mode to work. Not only does Toyota turn off the factory remotes when the engine is running but it won't allow you to lock the keys in the car.
Some people have found a "work around". Check out the Pictorial on the 2013 RAV4 for more info. You might be able to do something similar to your Highlander.
Soldering is fun!

Thanks Kreg. I think I'm just going to bring my valuables with me whenever I use it, which probably won't be very often, if at all.
Thanks again, everyone. This will probably be my last post. It's been an adventure with high points and low points and you guys stuck with me every step of the way. I truly appreciate it. Best wishes.
