Question about 2004 Ford F150
Check the battery cables, and have the battery tested.
If you can turn the key to the run position, and the theft light ( wart on the top of the dash with the blinking red LED ) go out, PATS ( Passive AntiTheft System ) is working correctly, it would not start with a push start if the theft system was activated.
Could be corroded terminals on the battery, or your battery is on its way out.
Think this was just bad luck to have the cable or battery issues at the same time as the key route you did.

Buy a key with a chip and get the car/keys recoded.
