Have you initialised the new keys?
The procedure is in the user manual.

To program keys to lock/unlock & arm/disarm the FZV/DWA features of your car...follow the instructions below.

TIPS:
  • KLR = ignition position 1 (not 2 or 3 or engine running)
  • Only insert the 1st remote into the ignition
  • make sure ALL doors are CLOSED
  • make sure ALL doors are UNLOCKED
  • start programming 2nd/3rd/4th remote key on STEP 3 where you start pressing the buttons and within 30 seconds of programming the 1st remote (as mentioned in STEP 6)

Check fuse #53 to make sure it's good; that was the root cause for me when I had your problem
