Do the new keys have the transponder chips in them? If they do and the 30 minute procedure is not working, it's gonna need a trip to a dealer.

im pretty sure they do. you can see what looks like epoxy on the edge of the non flip key and rock auto said they come with randomly assigned key codes. so i guess the dealer it is. gonna have too wait till spring now.
