2011 equinox theft-deterrent
 
I have one key that when I put it in the ignition the theft-deterrent light comes on and will not leave so the car will not start. when I put the other key in the car does start and the theft- doesn't come on.

Another odd point is if I take the second key out that did turn the car on and put the key that didn't start in the car will start but I have to put it in fast. If I wait the car will not start and theft-deterrent light comes on.

Now the fob works the only thing that doesn't work is the key to the first one.

Did you just buy this vehicle and the second key doesnt work or all of a sudden it stopped working. If you just bought this vehicle the non-working transmitter/key have to be programmed to work with the vehicle.

I had this vehicle and bought new fobs for it because they were broken. After I changed the fobs one key works good and the other will not work. I get the lock symbol on the dashboard.

How did you program them to work with the vehicle without going to a dealer?

One worked from the start the other one will not work. I keep getting the theft deterrent for the other.

Did you have to provide your VIN to the company that sold you the fobs?

no, awful strange one works and the other one doesn't. Same replacement fob. The fob that will not start the car will work to unlock the doors and I can start the car with the remote outside the car but as soon as I put it in drive it stalls.

the other one works perfectly.

makes no sense that either one would work

Why would you say that? I still have the insides of the FOB from the original. The only difference is the casing. Still the key and the guts of the original.

lets start all over, you said you got new FOBS which means the board inside would be new. Now you are saying you switched the board from the original into the new case??
