If you can get the system to be in the programming mode then the vehicle side is working and the new key fob is

the problem .

In some cases you may need to use diagnostic programming tools to detect and test the key fob to be 100% sure ,

but in my 100s times of programming key fobs the remote is not working or the correct key fob .

In many customer issue with this is mostly eBay bought private key fobs always best to buy from

known company's selling keys and key fobs ,if you did buy from a good company i suggest you work this out with them

for a replacement .
