UHOH this sounds like the factory presets have been lost and will have to be reflashed by the dealer, hopefully it will still run. There is a little tool that should be in everyone's tool box that prevents this kind of thing. See pic.

what is that thing called tennisshoes?

That one is called a code saver, I just got a much fancier one and it plugs right into the OBD2 port and uses a jump box or similar for power, I have longer battery life so if the repairs take longer I don't have to worry about loosing power.
