This is an anti-theft mechanism if you are going away for a while on a trip or just going to leave you car parked for a while this key shuts off the fuel system so no one can steel your car..

This is the trunk lever lock. The purpose for this is the master key (the black one) will turn in this lock and prevent the trunk lever from opening the trunk from inside the car. This is used if you have valuables in your trunk and need to leave the vehicle with someone else (valet parking, repair station etc.) in this case you give them the valet (grey) key that will not open or even turn in this lock. The valet key will not open the trunk or the glove box either . It will only open the door and start the vehicle. Hope this helps.
