    There is a small chip inside the black/grey part of the old key that the immobiliser needs to talk to to allow the car to start.

    If you have the old key you can try holding the black/grey part close to the ignition barrel. If you have your new key in you should see the immobiliser flash lamp go out if you're successful.

    Longer term you need to extract the chip from the old key and put it in the new one, or you could cut the old key's metal part off and just glue it to the black bit of the new key
