View my fuel log 2015 Mirage ES 1.2 automatic: 40.6 mpg (US) ... 17.3 km/L ... 5.8 L/100 km ... 48.8 mpg (Imp)
Type 1 –
1st key with electronic immobilizer
2nd key with electronic immobilizer

The type 1 option has no remotes to open/lock the doors of your Mirage. The electronic immobilizer is strictly an anti-theft device embedded in the key. I don’t think the type 1 option is used in the U.S., because I have a base model Mirage that has the type 2 keys.
Type 2 –
1st key with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
2nd key with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system

My 2017 Mirage ES (base model) came with two of these type 2 keys.
Type 3 –
1st F.A.S.T.-key with with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
2nd F.A.S.T.-key with with electronic immobilizer & keyless entry system
one emergency key is inserted in each of the F.A.S.T.-keys

Your original question makes it seem like you were given one type 2 key & one type 1 key. You lost your one type 2 key, and you are now using your one type 1 key. Thus, you don’t have the ability to open/lock your doors with a remote. Is this correct?
In the U.S., I don’t think a type 1 key even exists. You are either given two type 2 or two type 3 keys.
According to the owner’s manual in the U.S., I could make up to 8 extra keys (provided I have the two originals). I assume those 8 extra keys would be like the type 1 keys. Let’s say I cut & programmed 5 extra keys for family members. They could unlock the car manually with these keys & drive off with the car. My guess is the keyless entry is a separate issue that can only be taken care of by the dealer.
Your owner’s manual & keys may be different than ours. I am just trying to clarify all this. Your original question may have nothing to do with the F.A.S.T.-key.
Sadly, it takes over 20 pages in the owner’s manual to explain the variety of key options for this car. I find that rather silly.
Type 1 & 2 keys can manually unlock the driver's door. A type 3 emergency key unlocks the passenger door.
Please clarify your issue for us! In the end, the dealer may be your only option.
