Does the emergency key fit the hidden lock? (It should be in the driver's door on a LHD car.)

If it does, then the card probably did belong to the car at one point and it should be possible to have it re-programmed. Be sure to take all of your existing cards along, as they will all be required for the programming process.

If the key doesn't fit, then the card was probably from another car. Maybe a previous owner bought an already coded one off eBay , only to discover that it couldn't be re-programmed for their car. You could still take the gamble, but I doubt you'd get the card to work.
