02 KJ 1 key stopped working

I also posted this in the KJ fourm but perhaps this is a better location

Last night my wife is waiting in the parking lot to pick somebody up. She had the key in the acc position and was listening to the radio for about 8 Mins. When she went to start the jeep it would not turn over. I came down, saw that it did not need a jump and used my set of keys and it fired right up. I know these Jeeps use transponder keys but is it normal for a key to just stop working like that?

When the key is the primary the transponder can get worn over time. Also if she keeps it near anything magnetic it can be effected. Check with your dealer about programming a new one.

Talked to the dealer today they told me that the computer "forgot" that it has 2 keys registered to it. 40 dollars to reprogram my key
