Transponder shutdown?

I was at San Antonio International Airport, and I heard the tower trying to contact a lear 45. The controller told him to recycle the transponder a couple times but he didn’t respond until 20 minutes later. :question:

That would be guess too. KSAT does have ground surveillance radar in use.
