Default 06 Key Program - Car won't behave

I finally broke down and got the all in one keyhead blank for my 06 and took it to the dealer who tried to program it. He seemed to think it was the wrong one, although the Ebayer I got it from claims never to have had problems like this before. (He has excellent feedback and will take a return.)

I wanted to try and program the new key myself, but I can't get past the second step. The theft alarm light doesn't flash

Is there some other way to program this key?

1) Cut the additional Sentry Key Transponder blank....
2) Insert the first working key and turn the ignition ON for at least three seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch off and remove the first key.
3) Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON withing 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
4) Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON withing 60 seconds. After the ten seconds a chime will sound the Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing. turn on for 2 seconds; and then turn off.
The new Sentry Key has been programmed.
