found it. but how would that help the anti theft

Make sure you have your keys with you. Push the 7/8 9/0 at the same time, you should hear all the doors lock, wait at least 30 seconds, then enter your unlock code on to the pad, that should unlock the drivers door and deactivate the alarm system.

Not really, disconnect the negative battery cable, wait 30 seconds to 1 minute, reconnect the cable, then lock it as I stated above, but try using the key in the door lock and unlock the door, make sure you only turn it to unlock, if you turn it the wrong way you will have to start over, if this still won't shut it down then you will have to take it to a dealer and have the system completely reset and while they are there they can give you the factory code for the keypad.

problem is that i only have key to start truck .dont lock my doors because one or the other had been changed at one point years ago before i owned it,

Then look in the glove box, if your lucky there will be a little tag of paper glued to the inside, could be on the door or even inside the box area, it will have an FA or FB followed by a 4 digit number or it could be in the owners manual, if you don't find it then you could remove a door tumbler unit and take it to a locksmith and have a key cut, otherwise your stuck with the dealer so they can access the computer.
