Does the anti theft light go on ?? Cranks but wont start right? If so you need to go to the dealer because your vehicle has a chip in the key. It cannot be programmed locally. If you go to a real good locksmith he might have the tooling to do it. Good luck it normally runs around 1 to 200 bucks! Sorry for the bad news!

the theft light is flashing because the ' new ' truck computer does not identify with the key chip.
if you have two keys to the truck you can try one thing --- put one of the keys on the passenger seat ( this keeps the chip away from the ignition ),, put one key into the ignition and turn it to the ON position and wait about 15 seconds,,, turn back to the OFF position and remove the key -- now take the other key and put that into the ignition and turn to ON position and wait 15 seconds,, back to OFF and remove the key,, now place the first key that you started with into the ignition and turn to the ON position and wait and see if the theft light goes out,, if it does not go out - try and put the other key back into the ignition and see if does. IF it does not work then you will need to call a automotive locksmith that has the ford programer and they can come out and re-program your keys to the new computer ( but you have to have two keys to do this ) -- so if you only have one you will need to buy a new program key from the locksmith ( this is not cheap,, but it is necessary to program the trucks keys to the computer --- and it is a lot cheaper to have a locksmith come out to you then to have the truck towed to the dealer and then pay their price for the keys and programing --- the locksmith will charge you 75 to 80 dollars,,,,, the dealer will charge you 150 to 250 dollars ).
$75 dollars is what we charge at the lockshop that I work at in Alaska and it is a fair price.
have a great day,

it does sound like your battery is the problem but have a local shop test it and the charging system and the anti theft system connections maybe the alarm is draining the battery with a poor connection..
