The shape keys changes are only visible in edit mode. It only shows the basis in object mode no matter what. Enabling the shape key edit mode also makes all my changes invisible.

When I export the model, it only exports the basis and disregards all shape key values.

Shape keys of other meshes are behaving normally. I disabled the addons I used, I tried to separate the meshes, I also tried to reset the vector data for the normals I edited (the last thing I did before this happened). Non of them worked.

All of your shapekeys are muted.

Look at the empty box to the right of the value in your list of shapekeys. These boxes are empty meaning that they've been muted. If you hover your mouse over that box, you'll see a tooltip "Mute". Pinning a muted shapekey won't do anything; changing the value won't do anything.

For every shapekey that you don't want muted, click in that box. The box will get a checkmark in it, and the shapekey will start working.
