Wife calls and tells me her key fob to my Z quit working. So I go out and check mine, and the POS isn't working either!! WTF??
Haven't had any trouble with either Z till now. I guess its the receiver...take it to the dealer tomorrow.

Frank, mine does this once in a while as well, I take the battery out of the fob and then reinstall it and do a fob relearn through the DIC and it will be ok, but first try pushing the 2 buttons at the same time on the fob and hold that for a while and see if you get a horn beep, if you do the fobs relearned worked without going through the DIC. If you need help contact me

Did you replace the battery in the fob, I had that problem 1 month after I got my car.

That is because your a company type guy.
I would fix it myself, but do not forget I have nothing to do all day.

Batteries suck! This happened on my wife's '99 Durango a month after we got it. Both Fobs quit working within the same week. I thought it was the receiver, but it turned out to be the batteries.

Update:

I go to my Z this morning...and the key fobs work!!
WTF??
I still took it to the dealer and they couldn't find anything wrong.
Next time it happens, if ever, I'll run it back to the dealer. Hopefully it was just a one time glitch. Did Carl say something about Tequila and buttons??

I think Frank was drinking too much Tequila and forgot what buttons to push.
That is what I think.
