Default 2011 Durango Key FOB Issues

I have had a few problems with my Key FOB not being recognized for a short period on my 2011 Durango. Yesterday the car did not recognize my daily Key FOB nor my extra FOB. After searching many forums I tried all solutions suggested on many forums:
- New Battery in the Key FOB....no change
- take key out of FOB....no change
- Remove start button from dash , insert FOB and turn key to start....no change and the FOB could not be removed.
- Disconnect Battery and reconnect.....no change
But after calling AAA to tow to the Dealer my Tow Truck Driver had me look up the starter fuse (M27 Fuse mapped from the manual and mapped on the underside of the Fuse panel in the engine compartment) and then pop that fuse...wait a few minutes and reset the fuse in its position.

Voila! Everything was reset and I was able to remove the FOB from the ignition and start the truck. I highly recommend this as one of the fixes for your Durango not recognizing your key FOB!

Mine does it all the time. I haven't put the key in the ignition, I usually just hit the button or take the key out of my pocket and it'll start. PITA!!

I had this same problem with one of my fobs for the like the first 2 days i had the durango. I went back to the dealership and they ordered me a new fob and i have not had any problems since then... not sure if every dealer will drop 450 for a new fob but mine did just to shut me up and it worked!

Has happened to me once. Called the place that put in my aftermarket stereo and after about an hour of trying to figure it out. We disconnected the battery for about 5 min and everything was cool. there is some sort of kill switch on the truck that kicks on when it doesn't recognize the key for and it has to be reset by disconnecting the battery. The dealership couldn't help me they knew nothing about it. Has
