DIY Can't Program key fob

Hello!

I recently bought a used R53 '02 Mini Cooper S as is. Finally finished working on it and had to order a new key with the electronic door opening and closing functions since it didn't come with one.

I ordered it through the dealer, who is about an 8 hour drive away, and finally got it, only to find that I could not program with the instructions in both the manual that came with the car and the Bentley manual.

Can anyone help? I have tried everything I see online, as well as changing the battery to a brand new one. No luck.

Normally a new key needs to be programmed by the dealer. The methods you have tried are probably for when the key has already been dealer programmed but stopped working due to things like changing the battery etc. There may be a way to do it without the dealer programme but not sure on that one
