Please HELP! will not stay running!!!! due to column problems

I have a 99 Ford ranger with the 3.0....

This is my shop truck and we have had 5 Ford Rangers for the last 20 years.
Last year thieves broke into my 99 and stole the radio...they tried to steal the truck and busted the column all to heck.

Had to buy another column from a 99 at the boneyard. It has the factory key with the one from the boneyard...

Took it to the local Ford dealership and they cannot get it cleared so that it will start and stay running.

We need help on this! Is there anything that the dealership is overlooking?
So far they have the code on the key, the inner switch/signal doohickey that reads the key. they are at a loss and can't figure it out.
