30,000 miles of no issue driving. Tried to use auto start to let it warm up before an afternoon drive and nothing but dead crank. Exceeded 60 second crank time-out on three attempts. It's been an hour and twenty minutes and it has not reset to allow any cranking. Attempted to remove passenger foot-well fuse cover to check fuel pump fuse but even though I am a gear-head I must be missing the secret handshake on removing that cover. Is there a way to reset the "time-out" circuit. Ambient temp here is 34 degrees currently and it will usually start right off without issue. New to this site, any help greatly appreciated.

While waiting for approval prior to posting I went out and put the key fob in the "B" console cup holder in case the signal wasn't received. Well that allowed me to crank it but still dead crank no fire.

Hi, get that worked out yet?
1) Security light illuminated?
2) Yes. Disconnecting the battery for 5 min.& performing a relearn.
3) Do you have an alternate FOB you can try?
4) Pump prime when you were able to Crank, continue running during Crank?
Apologize for not seeing this quicker...
