May sound silly but try flipping the battery around. Or possibly finding your old battery and making sure you purchased the correct one. It has to be exact

Its exact and I took it out but still the same problem


Some of the key fobs are very picky when it comes to the batteries. Try another brand of battery. Also measuring the voltage of the old battery might be helpful. It is possible that the FOB is bad and not the battery.

Try reprogramming it?
