06 SMART Key Fob not working

Hey guys, extremely minor issue here, but looking to see if there are any answers since I couldn’t find any related to mine elsewhere.

I have two smart keys (flat rectangle discs) that came with my RX-8 that I recently purchased. I replaced the batteries in both of them and while the smart key buttons function correctly (unlock, lock, alarm and trunk) I noticed that the keyless piece that you stick into the ignition does not work, rendering a solid red KEY light on the dash which prompts me to always use the physical key instead.

Is there a way I can get this fob to work without using the physical key on my own or do I have to take it to Mazda and have them reprogram it?
