Help with key fob/central locking. I have tried everything

I have just bought a 2006 mazda5. I only have 1 key for it and it doesn't lock /unlock the car using the central locking. I have replaced the battery and done the process to reprogram the key to the car (open drivers door, turn key in ignition 3 times, close/open driver door 3 times and the central locking clicks as if ready for programing but when I press the unlock button on the Fob in the ignition it doesn't seem to register the clicks (central locking doesn't engage when pressing twice) the button press is working because the red LED on the Fob glows. I have tried disconnecting the car battery for a few seconds and trying again. Also, there is a dash light that flashes every few seconds. It's a red light with a car with a key in it. Please can you help. Thank you.

The picture shows (to the left) a "new" second hand key that I bought off ebay, to program the electric part with my central locking because (to the right) the key Fob unlock button didn't work on the key I got with the car, however the inside of the Fobs are not the same but the top part with the blade did just simply click into the new one from the old one.
