Key Problem

I have an unusual issue. I got some extra keys for my 2012 Wrangler Rubicon, one with the remote buttons and two plain chip keys. The remote key and one of the plain keys programmed without problems, but one of the plain keys wouldn't program. Today, I decided to try it again and now none of my original or newly programmed keys works. I get the DTC for an invalid key.
Does anyone know of a way to reset the jeep to the original keys, short of having it towed to the dealership? Many thanks for any help you can provide!

Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. Then try your original working key.

Thanks!

Worked like a charm. Many thanks! I can't believe I didn't think of the old standby for correcting computer issues--Duh! I've had a lot of crazy things going on in my life lately and my brain just went into overload when I thought I'd disabled my jeep. Thanks again!
