remote key issues

Can you take a key fob from another Trax and reprogram it to your car?

I purchased one from Ebay and am going through the reprogramming sequence and i can't get the one i just purchased to program. What's worse is the car is asking for key #2 and when i push the start button with the new key in the cup holder nothing happens. Now every time i go to start the car it asks for key #2 and i have to hold the start button for 10 seconds to get out of programming mode before i can start the car.

Any help would be appreciated.

Normally the reprogramming on your own works fine but in this case it almost seems like you might have to take it to a dealer if you can't get it going.

Before taking it to a dealer, pull the battery and let it sit out for 30 seconds. Then press all the buttons 3-5 times each. This should completely reset any power to the remote and start it like new. Then program as normal. That should take care of it, if not you have just gotten a bad key from Ebay.

That which does not kill me had better start running.
