1999 Nissan Maxima. Got an oil change and car would not start to leave shop. Mechanic says the car all of a sudden does not recognize the key's computer chip. We are having it towed to dealership for car to be re-programmed. What would have caused this? Oil changers deny putting car on computer or doing anything with car besides changing the oil, replacing a fog lite and replacing air filter.

Did they take the battery off? Although this should not cause a problem like this.
