Key not detected

What's up guys, the other day my 2010 g37x sedan wouldn't respond to my key fob. I couldnt even go into Acc mode. I ended up replacing the car battery since the other one ended up being bad. But still no response to key fob (yes I put in a New fob battery) and I even tried with my other key fob that I had. The only way the car turns on or does anything is when I put the fob in the little slot left of the steering wheel. I checked the 140 amp fuse that's on the positive terminal and looks to be fine. Not sure what else to look for before I bring it into the dealer. So again the car doesn't detect key when in the car and key fob cant even lock or unlock doors. Thanks

Could be a bad batch of fob batteries. I bought a pack once at Wally-Mart and the damn things were dead right out of the package.

Does the engine start with the fob in the key slot?
