If everything else is as it was prior to it not running then you need the locksmith to come back out and finish the job. Theft is a couple of modules that have to be on the same page, sequence number 1 and 1, 2 and 2. If power was supplied to the theft and not the pcm then they will be out of sync, 1 and 3, 2 and 4 etc. Have them erase all keys, reset parameters, and program a minimum of 2 keys to the truck. Unless there is something wrong beyond what you've described this should take care of it.
