DEI 8631 Momentary Valet / Programming Button

The DEI 8631 Valet / Programming Button is a pre-wired normally open push-button switch. This push button switch is used for the Valet and Programming functions of all DEI Brand Alarm, Remote Starter & Keyless Entry Systems that have plug-in switches and a corresponding socket in the CPU. It is identical to the Valet / Programming Switch originally included with all current and previous DEI Brand Systems.

The DEI 8631 can also be used for any other "momentary switch" uses by just cutting off the blue plug at the end so the wires can be connected directly to other wires.

Note: For programming new replacement remotes:

DEI Brand alarm, remote starters & keyless entry systems require the use of this valet / programming button to "program a new remote" into the DEI System's CPU ('the brain"). In general, you program a new remote using this button and your ignition key.

The only exceptions to this are the older DEI systems (manufactured before about 1995) that use the DEI 465T and DEI 493T replacement remotes (which we trace-cut to match the transmitter code in your DEI CPU), and the DEI Wasp 718W Alarm System, which programs differently.

All DEI Systems that use a valet / programming button were originally supplied with at DEI 8631 momentary button with the system and it should have been included as part of the original installation. However, we have determined that some installers did not include it when they originally installed the DEI System in the vehicle. Therefore it is recommended that you check to be sure that you have a Valet / Programming Button installed in your vehicle when you order replacement remotes because
you will need it to program your new remote.

You would know this button as the "Valet Button" or the "Bypass Button" or the "button you press" to shut off your alarm with the ignition key. It is usually mounted somewhere under the dash on the driver's side, maybe on the underside dash panel, or on the driver's kick panel by your left foot, or by the parking release pedal, or by the hood release, or sometimes it is wire tied to some factory wires under the dash. It's located wherever the installer decided to put it. There is no specific location because it depends on the particular vehicle where it can be mounted. Just look around for it.

If you can't find it, then you can determine if it is installed somewhere, or not, by finding the system's CPU and checking to see if there is a Blue Plug with gray & black wires plugged into the Blue Socket on the CPU (see photo). If there is one plugged in, then you can then follow the gray & black wires to the Valet / Program Button in your vehicle. If the Blue socket on the CPU is empty, then you need to order 1 – DEI 8631 Momentary Valet / Programming Button along with your Replacement Remote so you will be able to program it into the CPU.

Here's how to Find the CPU if you can't find the Valet / Programming Button in your vehicle.
