Are you sure that you put the battery in correctly? Does it lock and unlock doors when used from 15 feet away?

What about the 12V battery in the vehicle, was is the voltage when the engine is shut off?

I can't say for your car or for Toyota specifically, but on some cars if the keyfob is too close to the car when parked, it is still communicating with the car and that is what runs down the keyfob battery. Note in the description of the Faraday bag I posted a link to, they specifically mention it can be used for keyfobs so that it blocks the signal to the car when not being used.

I can't tell you if this is your problem, or how far away the keyfob has to be when the car is parked. You should probably test the keyfob battery (or replace it again) to see if the keyfob battery is the problem.

Normally, I would say to try your other keyfob, but I guess a lot of people who bought their car used seem to only get one keyfob.
