Key Not Detected

So I made an appointment for Friday at my local Ford Dealership where I had purchased my S model. lately its been saying on the message center "key not detected" and refusing to start the car with the standard "valet" key. When i told this to the service tech over the phone he told me its cause i have to use the big chipped key to start the car. Oh pardon me, the key ford gave me with the car as a spare key DOESNT WORK ? Its worked since march and all the sudden its not working? No im not satisfied with that answer. So in the shop it goes to check for a faulty key or ignition, etc.

I read this forum enough to know that issues are pretty common.
