Default spare key no longer working, opinions?

Hey all.
Recently my spare key for my 98 accord EX is no longer working. The original keys were lost and a locksmith made the one I've been using for a few years. The spare he made has worked for me up until this point but just a few days ago no longer does so.

I'm led to believe it's because the immobilizer isn't recognizing the key anymore and thus not allowing gas into the engine to start. The immobilizer light on the dash is lighting up now when I try to start the car. It's turning over and everything just not starting. Pretty sure it isn't the fuel pump, not the battery as I tried to jump it and still doesn't work.

I find it weird that it just suddenly doesn't work anymore. A few times this has happened and I would take the key out and wait a few seconds then try again and it would start, now it just does not.

So would I be correct in thinking I just need to get a key programmed at a honda dealership or could it possibly be something else? Thanks for any help.
