Please help!!1 98 ford explorer won't start due to i believe anti-theft.

So i swapped out engines from two running vehicles. One was shot due to multipule overheating. The other one ran fine. but had a bad trans. So i proceeded to swap them out and i have the one i want back together. I had a critical mistake and pulled the radio out for a friend but never gave it to him so it is back in. When i turn the key on i can't hear the fuel pump and theres no pressure like it had before. And there is no spark at all. The anti-theft light comes on and after 3 seconds starts to flash like crazy. I don't have a factory alarm or after market. Just standard bullsh1t ford system.
I have tried locking and unlockig all the doors and when i get to the drvers side it makes a noise like something is reseting but no luck. I tried reseting the computer but no luck.
Can someone please help me out.
