If it set the anti theft off this is what it will do stall no crank. Light should flash a few times and then stay on steady to start.

No I only have the 1 key

You can't. Truck has to be reprogrammed with 2 keys.The best thing to do is call a locksmith and have him do it rather than have to be towed to a dealer.

How would this happen with the key in the truck and it be running?

The antitheft has to recognize the key to run.The key has a chip in it. The key has probably went bad and when it loses the signal the antitheft shuts the vehicle down.

Yes they will have the equipment and keys to do it much cheaper than a dealer.

Check the PCM relay in the fuse panel, mine went and when trying to start the engine won't crank and there is a click coming from the fuse panel, you get a link error using a OBD2 reader and check gauges error on the odometer. The click is the relay trying to make contact, but the points have stopped making contact so the power doesn't go through to the starter, On a 2007 F150 it is relay #203, you can try one of the other ones beside it as they are identical relays and are for the fog lights #202 or towing lights #201, you decide which you can do without to get you going again.

I know this is old but you can reset the theft protection by disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for 10 minutes or so. I've had this happen twice and a tow truck driver showed this to me.
