I am. Walked homeboy the other key, it also doesn't work.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

ok lets try a hard reset

if not , then you will need a dealer or diagnostic scanner to retrieve the codes , then I can tell you what is going on

but for now maybe a hard reset will reset the security system

1- Disconnect battery for 10 minutes

2- reconnect battery and see if the blinking light will go away and you can started

please let me know , i'm online till 12 pm

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

its a new car , it should not have issues yet , how many miles on it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I fixed it on my own no need to disconnect battery. Just wasn't turned off properly. Double push on the stop button as the manual said got it turned off. Then keys reconnected and both keys work again now.
