Default Dead car battery. Now RKE does not work

I was doing some work in the garage and listening to music from the car. it was turned to ACC and I didn't think twice about it. a few hours pass and the music shuts off. I realize that hours had passed and the battery is dead, nothing works. I pull the key and get my battery charger. put it on a charge and when it was done it fired right up. I put everything away and go to lock it but the RKE does not work. unlock, lock, panic or truck. I checked the fuse in the underhood fuse panel and it's fine. what happened? do I need to go back to the dealer for reprograming or is there something that I need to do?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

For starters, be sure that the battery in the RKE fob is good.

If the rke battery checks out good, try disconnecting (car) battery negative for a minute then reconnect it. Sometimes electronics hang up. Disconnecting main battery power allows volatile memories to drain for a factory reset. Be prepared to hear the alarm in case it goes on and use your remote to shut it off.

The fob batteries are good as I tried both fobs and different batteries. I'll try disconnecting the battery and see from there.
