Lights left on caused a dead car battery - after a jump everything works fine except the car radio which is completely non-functioning. I can turn it on, but nothing functions. I think "it" thinks there was an attempted steal because the anti-theft light blinks.
Is there a code to enter to get this started again?

I doubt the service person did anything wrong. In today's cars with both engine and body computers, jump starting a car can be risky. You're better off having the battery charged for an hour or so then trying to start it. You may have to have the body computer scanned and possibly flashed to get everything working again. The body computer controls everything you mentioned. It could have lost some of the factory programming when the system was dead.
Okay, what you seem to be saying is the battery does not turn over the engine and the battery smokes when you jump it to start it. But the lights and radio and everything works except the car will not turn over by itself. The battery smokes because either the battery has a short in it, it smokes because the starter is dragging, and/or the jump wires are not hooked up red to red and black to black. You need to have the battery and starter checked. If the car runs take it to an autoparts place to test. Or if it won't run take out the battery have it tested and if it is good, then take out the starter to test it.
you need to call your local dealership and they will give you the code to reset you radio.. good luck keith..p.s. remeber to write down the codes, that way if it happens again you will have the code for the radio..
It could be a fuseabel link in your cars wiring system that is causing the problem...you will have to get an ohmeter and test both the main power wire and the ground wire and make sure there is current...If that doesn't turn up a result then you can always install a positive wire from your ignition from the "ACC" terminal to a fused wire and bypass the whole system. You will also need a ground wire somewhere close to the unit itself. Do not link directly to your battery terminals or you will get a "HUM" in your sound system becasue of your alternator. Good Luck!
