Recharge the battery. Or buy a new one. But make sure you have a fully charged battery.What happened was that the battery drained because it probably needs replacement. When the battery drained too low. The ECU deprogramed itself. When installing a new or fully charged battery. Start the car. You may have to remove the negative cable a few times then restart it for the CPU to go into the default settings.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Assuming that the check engine light is off that's why they can't trace the fault, then the fault will be on the PCM (powertrain control module). The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car which includes the engine, transmission, accessories, etc.
Try to swap the PCM for this is surely faulty. The PCM is like a car's brain that when it's faulty something will surely fail. I believe you'll be good after the replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
