I had a similar problem with an identical fob I bought on ebay from the USA and KIA garage couldn't code it. Reason is that they operate on different frequencies apparently. I was attracted by fact that including p&p it cost sub £10 from USA versus about £70 over here but alas the master plan had a flaw !

Best regards
Ian
