Interesting Flip Key Dilemma

Howdy, folks!

Recently purchased an 08 Civic EX coupe 5spd to replace the nightmare that is the 03 Civic EX sedan 5spd that still sits outside... hoping that it becomes someone else's project one day.
Anyway, I also have an 09 Accord EXL sedan (4cyl). Both my new car and my Accord have the 4-button key fob. I got a flip key cut for my Accord maybe 2 years ago and just popped the remote/circuit board from the stock fob into the flip key and it worked without issue. No soldering needed.

... I did the same for the Civic (since I had a spare flip key fob lying around)... got the blade cut, inserted the remote/circuit board, and the car shut off after a second or so of starting. And the green key light flashes on the dashboard. I remember this happening with my Accord, but that was before I installed the remote/circuit board from my main key into the flip key fob... after that it worked fine.
I'm just wondering why it isn't working with my Civic. I got a new CR1616 battery thinking that would've helped, but nope... same thing.
Fortunately, the car came with a spare/valet key. I don't wanna have to sacrifice that key... or my main key. Is there something I'm missing? Lol

The RFID chip on the fob circuit board may not be close enough to the antenna ring in the steering column.

I figured as much. I'd really love to not have to destroy my spare key lol
