Both keys should now have new & security & assigned by the car's system.

Those codes will be continuously incremented within the new sequence each time you hit a button. It is when they get out of sequence with the car that they lose the capability to be recognized and you then have to do this again. That occurs when you take longer than 1 minute changing the battery, or if you hit buttons more often the 1000 times when it is out of range of the car.
