Sounds like you have 3 failures
1. missing blade key
2. non-working ignition chip
3. failed remote.
And again, those keys can be programmed by single and secret location in Texas and only once when activated, so your key is garbage, unless you might save the shell.
Having single key for this car brings some concerns, so shop around for a new one.
I bought one last fall for less than $180, what is generation 2 chrome fob including the blade
Those, having slightly different sender sometimes miss the interaction, but look so good.
