That is not an OEM key/fob. There have been a number of aftermarket key/fobs produced that take the original fob guts and puts it into a more elegant package.

The OEM key has a black plastic handle without any markings. The OEM fob is a Cobra alarm fob that looks like testicles. It is connected to the key ring with a rubber link that is prone to break.

Replace the battery in your fob and try resync per the following directions.

The one on the bottom of the key chain is the oem key.
