Default 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?
