keycard maladies.......

hi all,

One of my keycards finally gave up locking the car yesterday (it feels like a broken switch in the keycard) so for the first time I tried to use the spare card that came with the vehicle - its a laguna II with a 2-button card.

The spare card locks and unlocks the doors but it won't start the car! Once inserted into the slot on the dash the radio comes on but there's no ignition lights or the like.

Is this a simple case of it not being the right key for the car (even though it locks/unlocks it!) or is there something that needs to be done to the card to activate it.

I'm using the car by having the spare key to lock it and the original key to lock and start it. The spare card look unused and was attached to a piece of card in the handbook if that helps shine any light on the matter.
