I'll try again: The other key works normally. However, the key in question now works properly. I don't get it. I thought I remembered seeing somewhere that there was a way to link the key by holding down one of the buttons (lock or unlock) and pressing the set button on the door, but I don't know the sequence or duration. If you remember anything like this, please let me know in case the problem recurrs. Otherwise, problem solved. Thank you for your help.

Hello again. When the cars battery is dead or replaced it has to recognize the keys again. Simply pushing the lock then unlock button on the key with all doors closed to cycle the locks and then starting the engine with ththat key reinitializes it.
