Oops. Sometimes when the battery is changed, the user should put a memory saver inserted into the cigarette lighter to save radio presets and more importantly security information in the computer.

Maybe, have to take to dealer to have key(s) reprogammed to the vehicle.

Also, check that there isn't some other aftermarket fob that needs to be inserted before the truck can be started.

Also, make sure that the battery connections are clean and tight on the new battery.
