ermmm...am I being thick
are we saying that there is a secret emergency key that will work the car in full that many owners haven't spotted and leave in a theif-friendly spot in the glove box???
The idea is that the (inactive) key holder which is the same external dimensions as the ?normal? keys is stored in the special holster in the glove box.
The plastic blade emergency key is necessary to ?activate? the holder.
As such it should NOT
be stored in the holder or anywhere within the vehicle. Because the key blade is so small it can be easily stored in a wallet / purse.
The sequence for using the emergency key is:
1). Unlock the doors using the blade key
2.) Once in the vehicle clip the blade key into the holder (retrieved from the glove box).
3.) Use the combined key assembly in the normal slot to start the vehicle.

I understand that steps 2 & 3 need to be done fairly quickly to avoid the vehicle alarm activating.
I hope this helps
