The trunk lockout will stop the FOB as well...

It is so only a key will open the trunk.. A valet key will start the car but not open the glovebox or the trunk. At least that is how it is on most cars...

Corvette ZR-1'* had a special Valet setup. It would only let the smaller set of valves open on the engine so if some punk valet kid thuoght he just got his hands on a new ZR-1 he'd get about half the power.

Most trunk lockout switches are in the glovebox. Then you lock the glovebox with the door key, and only give the fob and ignition key to the valet/dealer/mechanic, etc.
