Default key turns car over but won't start

Hi,
My mom and mechanic repeatedly took the battery out of the car, and replaced it to crank another car. Now, THE CAR WON"T START!!! It will turn over as if it is going to start but never does. I am wondering if the computer has been reset and possibly I need the key to be reprogrammed at the dealership. Is it possible that the key is not in sync with the computer.

Maybe the computers need to be reset.
If the key went bad it would tell you in the window start prevention try again.

I pushed the button on the left to look for messages and there wern't any. When I try to crank the car no warnings come on. All the lights are on( enginge,etc), which is usual when you first start the car. It justkeeps turning over, it won't stay cranked.
