Thanks. But not 100% convinced.
From my searching the keys are passive, you have to tell the car to accept them, not the key to accept the car.
I think the issue could be to do with the transponder (not sure this is the right word) type of the ecu. My existing key has a '3' on the blade part of the key under the arch, the key I bought has a '2' and thus doesn't match my car's transponder.
I failed to win a '3' on eBay the other day to get the chance to prove this theory!
If anyone has a spare key with a '3' on it could they let me have it...
I have one with a '2' on it if anyone wants to give that a go.
