The 2019 Forte has a hidden key lock. Its on the right side of the driver's door handle. The end cap of the handle comes off , when the release button on the bottom is depressed, revealing the lock.

Had same problem this morning. I just bought the car. When and got the spare key and it worked. I did not know about the end cap on the door handle.

Read the owners manual you will learn a lot about the car on the drivers door at the back on the bottom there is small hole stick the Key in there and the cover pops off key hole right there. If you have pushbutton start the bottom of the fob there is a release button and the Key comes out.
