reprogram the key by getting in the car and close all doors, turn the ignition on and off in 5 seconds, remove key, press and hold unlock while pressing lock three times, then release unlock. if successfully reprogrammed, the doors will lock and then unlock.
if wont program, the battery is dead and wont charge anymore, so time for a new battery.
