Won't enter valet mode

Took my 2016 Hellcat to dealer today for steering wheel shake 65-70MPH, slight pull to right and 3rd brake light crooked.

Tried to put car into valet mode and Uconnect locked up. I've entered valet mode before, no problem.
Only way to unlock Uconnect was to turn car off and leave car with key in hand.
Started back up normal, tried valet mode and same thing happened again.

Anybody else experience this?

Hi rumblebee16--this occurred at the dealership? Were the technicians able to assist and find the cause?

Got the car back last night. I didn't want my interior taken apart, so the 3rd brake light wasn't fixed. Dealer said the headliner needed to come down to replace that piece. Said the steering wheel vibration was really exhaust drone?? Also said the pull to the right was because of road crown. I don't agree with these conclusions. Going to take their quality specialist for a test drive at a later date.

As far as valet mode, of course after sitting for a bit, the car is acting normal and no longer getting stuck when entering valet mode. So, hopefully issue doesn't come back. Or I will bring it back in for diagnosis.
