Clio ‘06, spare key won’t start engine

  Renault Clio 1.2
Hi all, I have a Clio 1.2v Expression, that I can’t current use because my spare key won’t turn the engine on.

I had to stop using my normal key because the unlock/lock buttons were being unusable, so I started using my spare key instead.

Then my spare key broke, so I had to start using my normal key again, but to try and make things easier, I put the motherboard of my spare key into my normal key (big mistake, I know that now) and tried to start my car yesterday, and it won’t start, everything else comes up, the dashboard lights up as it should, but when I turn the key into ignition, the engine doesn’t start.

I tried switching back to my normal key, but I am unable to unlock and lock the doors with that one now, and when I put the car into the ignition, the engine tries to start, but doesn’t. Any help? As you can probably tell, I’m not very good with cars.
