Have you checked to make sure the battery in the replacement fob isn't flat or missing

There is no right or wrong button to press, any of them will do

I was under the impression you press and hold unlock and lock together for about three seconds.

As for the battery, so simple, yet so likely!

That's to change the way the doors unlock, either single stage or dual stage

Put in a fresh CR2032 battery, check the contacts are touching the battery and just push one button when programming to the car.

just use ELM to change those settings, rather than the old fashioned method that any one can do ;)
