Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

It sounds as if you removed the good fob from memory when trying to program. Not knowing exactly what you did to try and program it, here is the correct procedure. Try this first and if neither fob still works then the next step will be to test them to see if they are transmitting

Cycle the key from off to on six times within ten seconds ending with it off and leave the key in the ignition.
After two seconds the turn signals will flash twice showing that it's in programming mode.
Press and hold the unlock button on the fob you're programming.
Press the lock button three times and then release the unlock button.
The turn signals will flash once if signal is received and the fob has programmed. If this doesn't happen then you have a fob issue.
If it does work then do the same with the second fob and see if it works.
When you're done then turn the key on, the turn signals will flash and it exits programming mode.
