    i'd say you've used a dud battery, rom what i understand the keyfob is hard coded, even if you leave the battery out for days / months, it keeps it's identity, it's the keyfob that is then programmed to the car

    so changing the battery would't cause a problem, unless you changed it for a dud battery, why did you change the battery anyways? was it useless, even when next to the car?

    i am sure other will let you know if i am correct or not
