I think the trick is to start the procedure with the key at II so that the system recognises a registered key before you start the turns.
A lot of people that start at 0 have mixed results.

I had the same problem after leaving my car in an airport car park. Maybe the key fob was next to a mobile for a week? Anyway, used the turn off and on technique four times, starting with ignition and it worked. Brilliant! Great advice! Thanks!

You may find that not using the car for a week puts it into a deep sleep to conserve battery power so therefore the key doesn't instantly read.
