    The battery may be installed backwards or the contacts may be corroded. If the remote has an LED on it, does the LED light up when you press the button? Also try pressing the button a few more times to see if it syncs up.

    Some have the same issue with the 9-5. I think I had to start my car after replacing the battery for it to work but can't remember exactly what I did.
