Is the key fob not working an MFT issue and anyone else have it?

So I've had this issue with my key fob not working at all intermittently.

I always thought it was a MFT issue but it hasn't gotten better at all with the updates.

When it does happen, the car will not respond to any of the key presses. The only way to fix this is sometimes open the door to force MFT to turn on.
Other times I have to start the engine then turn it back off.

And then maybe it might work...

So naturally I just assumed it was another MFT bug, but it is not being addressed at all in these updates...

anyone else have this issue?

Pretty sure there was a TSB that was supposed to address this and it was a (TCM?) update, but not MFT.

Sidenote: LOL, MONCKS CORNER.

EDIT: 11-10-01 - INTERMITTENT REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY (RKE) OPERATION - KEY FOB - BUILT ON OR BEFORE 8/3/2011
There we go.

There was a separate issue with the intermittent keyfob issues. I think there was a TSB for it.

Anyone by chance have the contents of this TSB?

There is no amount of words I can describe for my hatred to going to Ford service now. If it is simple process I can do it myself I would rather do that...

INTERMITTENT REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY (RKE) OPERATION - KEY FOB - BUILT ON OR BEFORE 8/3/2011

Reprogram the body control module to the latest software calibration level using the IDS release 74.03 or higher.

I feel the same way. When I took it to the dealer and they said they "couldn't reproduce it."
