Default Security light blinking and truck turns off while driving

About two months ago I tried to start my truck with a low battery, after a lot of clicking and chugging, it started. It started up and now my security light is now blinking constantly. I dont have an alarm or a key with a chip in it. I thought getting a new battery would fix it, but the light is still blinking. (I figure I shorted something out due to a voltage spike). When driving down the road my truck will randomly turn itself off as if I turned the key off. The engine doesnt skip a beat or chug, it just all of a sudden turns off. I can pull over and start it again with no problem.

It has happened 4 times in the last two months. I took it to the dealership and they said they couldnt find any codes and they couldnt reproduce the problem. I know how complicated electrical problems can be. Any suggestions where to start? It acts as if the truck thinks I should have a security chip in my key and shuts off. (Just realized this is the 4.7L Page, but all help is appreciated)
