Ok, just to start off with this is not my car. It is someone I work with and she thinks that I am all knowing on cars so she asked me. I couldn't answer her questin so I'll ask here.

She says the glove box won't unlock at all even with the key. The trunk won't unlock from the inside but does with the key. Oh, and yes she's a blonde and probably didn't read the manual.:rofl:

You truck is currently set to the valet position.

1. Note the orientation of the key slot on the trunk (it will either be horizontal or vertical)
2. Try turning the key clockwise and see if it stays in the opposite orientation
3. If step 2 fails turn the key counterclockwise
4. The orientetion of the key slot on the trunk should now be the opposite of what it is in step 1
5. Try opening the trunk from button on the inside (it should work)

Try the same with your glovebox - sounds like its the same issue.

2006 Convertibles were E46 platform in the USA. If the answers suggested here don't work you might try that forum.
