My Proton car remote does not work even with a new battery.
It switches on, but it does not release the locks.

If the spare fob works you need to check the fob that is not working, it might need reprogramming.

You would need an appropriate scan tool for your model. Check with the dealer.

How to program savvy keys.

[1] Turn ignition to the "on" position.

[2] Hold reset button [white dot one on the switch cluster ] in on the dash and keep it depressed.

[3] Turn ignition to "off" and remove the key. [Still holding in that button]

[4] Reinsert key and turn ignition to on. [Still holding in that button ]

[5] Now release the reset button on the dash.

[6] Press either the lock or unlock button on the fob while its still in the ignition lock.

[7]You will hear a Beep and the red immobilizer LED light flashes and the doors will lock.

[8] Now with the second key fob press a button and [beep/flash/doors lock.

[9] Switch ignition to off.
