Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that the initial problem was owing to your pressing the panic button. The reaction you got was only reasonable, considering that the panic button is supposed to lock down the car and sound its alarm in an attention-getting way, to discourage an attempted theft in-progress.
So your alarm system now is in a disabled 'panic' mode, still, in all likelihood. You need to
1. reset the alarm system
2. connect it up to the car again fully
3. go through the initial install configure-remotes procedure to get the remotes to work.
(Since I don't know what alarm system you have in your truck, I cannot give more specific information until I am told its maker and model #.)
